    you will need to drop the tranny, bell housing, next the back half of the oil pan will need to be loose and the back 3 bolts taken out.

    next unbolt the back face plate. replace the main seal, it has to be installed from the inside side of the plate. Some have tried removing it like SBC's but have had to go back in and replace it again because of leaks from improper installation.
