Even after all that,I'm still not un-pissed. OK,gentlemen...How difficult is it to replace the throttle shaft seal on a Torqueflite? What was a very slight leak has turned into a @#$%ing gusher,and it looks like it's at the t.s. seal. The manual really isn't thorough in its explanation,so I figured I'd come to the experts-you cats! Looking at it,it seems that the filter and valve body(and the pan as well-duh...)need to be removed and that the seal gets pushed out from the inside of the case and the new one goes in the same way. Any special tips or advice,folks? Things ain't going so good right now,and I may even be in a position to sell the car. Yeah,shit be @#$%ed up. I could really use to fix this so I can focus on the charging system issues and now a rough-running motor as well. Sometimes,when it rains,it bloody pours. I know this crap is a test because I quit smoking 4 months ago. ...Oh,as always,THANK YOU!!!
