    well since you are in there take a look at it and see, if it is a high mileage stocker or really beat on probably a good idea, along with the flywheel.

    As for replacing the rear main, have yet to do it. It shouldn't be that hard to do, just take your time.

    No fancy stuff when replacing the rear main seal....drop the trannie.....get a screwdriver and pry that sum bitch out of there....wipe it clean and gently tap the new one in place....

    make sure you don't gouge the block getting the old one out and make sure the new one goes in straight.

    I took an old bearing race that was the same size and tapped it in place. This way you get the seal in strait and dont mess up the seal itself.

    You don't need to drain the oil. It really isn't hard to do. We are just saying to be careful not to gouge anything. If you are somewhat capable you can replace the rear main. I think that it is actually easier on the manual. Take it easy on the hydraulic lines going into the bell housing. Use a fuel line removal tool to take them off.
