Please post quality information here on replacing the rear main seal.

That's the instructions on their site. I liked the ones they sent me with the seals. A lot more detailed with measurements and pictures. I'll have to see if I can find them. They should be online somewhere.
Did you get instructions with it?I bought the one from Mancini Racing.
Well I looked and couldn't find the instructions that came with the one I bought from 440 Source. Must have thrown them out.
They had pictures, they showed how to measure the distance between the bearing cap and seal cap, showed how much side seal to leave, ect. Maybe I'll contact them in the next day or two and see if they can email them to me. They would make the perfect "sticky".
Thats the one! Good job MechanicHere is the file. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader or a similar program to view it.
I remember seeing one too. Don't know how good a seal it was or if it was available because I ended up going with the 440 Source one.A little off topic. A few months ago I saw in a magazine someone came out with a "one piece" seal for BB/Hemi's.
It only had one opening so you could put it on crankshaft it in the block. Be damn if I can find the article or the name of the guy who makes them. Anyone know?
I am glad to hear that. After comparisons, I too, ordered the kit from Hughes engines. It is on it's way. First, I down loaded the instructions ( the ones Kryslerkid posted) and they were very thourough with several pictures. I expect some of the other sources are the same kit. ................MOThe above ^^^^^^^instructions (posted by khryslerkid) are from Hughes Engines. I had the Mancini seal retainer and always had a small leak. I bought the Hughes retainer, which is slightly different, installed it per the above instructions, and finally got a leak free motor.
