Juts had the racing caddy looked at by a mechanic. It turns out that the oil leak was not the rear main seal, but the half seal. I mean it is constant leak at operating temp.

I dont have the time to do another tear down to replace the half seal. Can I use Lucas to seal it up enough?

I wouldn't. All that snake oil does is swell the seals..........ALL OF THEM.

-Its a gamble.

-It is my experience that stop leak stuff will most often greatly reduce the leak. However, it can also make it much worse.

-Usually it does slow it down, but I have had an occasion in which the 'stop leak' must have swelled the seal to the point it busted out completely.

Brought it over to Lindsey and it turns out we royally screwed up most of the work. Not enough rtv, had to redo most of the work.
