Tell us about what it was doing before you replaced the seal, and what's doing now. In particular, has the front cover ever been removed?

Well, that's kind of a tough call. It could be something simple like a leaking inake gasket. Or could be something like a cracked block. It shouldn't be that hard to diagnose, though. And...

That summit kit is pretty good. The alum fixtures allow you to bolt the indicater directly to the block, like through a head bolt hole.

There's really nothing wrong nwith the roller type pilot bearing. I don't know if there's a specific advantage to it, though. I use one, becuase it makes me feel better.

I don't use a solid lifter for that. I attach the magnetic dial indicater base to the deck surface. I put a standard lifter in the holes, and use the dog bones and spider to hold it in place. The...

When you replaced the pilot bearing, did you use the same type? Or did you upgrade to a roller? If you loosen all four bolts that hold the trans to the bell housing, what happens? If the trans...

I'v tried a few differant seals. The best one I'v found so far is the FMS part. You can slide it in with your fingers - no pounding required. And I have never had a failure.

You really don't need it. It's only there to hold the clutch cable in place on the assembly line, until the drive train meets with the chassis.
