Sometimes it is just hit or miss. It should not leak when replacing it as long as it is done right. I have never had one leak, but know many people that have. I have a new one piece rear main seal in mine now that is leaking. I had my 351 block machined to a one piece seal because the two piece seal broke loose and was leaking like a seive. I could take it back to machine shop but it is only a small leak and it is not worth taking engine out now. They install the seal, and they told me next time i take engine out they will check the machine work to make sure everything is true.

I would consider buying a new flywheel if its apenny over $30. When i was looking to have mine turned the lowest i could find was like $45 so i bought a new ford racing one from a local shop for $95 and i sold my old used one on ebay for $61. I couldnt believe people would pay that much for a used flywheel

yea i mean ive installed rear mains before so i should be ok. yea ill have to even see if the flywheel is bad. im sure it is though cuz the chatter is bad. i just went to autozone and ordered the pilot bearing and a cheap clutch disc. i just want to do this to hold me over until i can get the tko600 and spec stage 2.

dont make your day harder than it has to be, you can rent that and the pilot bearing puller and attachment for free at Autozone.

Replace the rear main seal, coat the new one with bearing greese and smack it soft and EVEN till it will not go back. keep notice of the side with the spring and the side without.

IT WILL NOT LEAK

I just used some bearing grease, packed it in behind the existing pilot bearing, and then (like you mentioned) used a socket and an extension in front of a hammer...it comes right out. Make sure the socket is a tight fit in the center of the pilot bearing.

Also, lube up the outside of the new one before you put it in and it will go in a LOT easier.
