    help me find the how to on half case seal replacement

    Help me find a good thread on half case seal.....again searched to many threads already.....

    Ok, im ok with having to pay $600 to R & R the tranny......

    but my half case leaks like a sieve, add 3 quarts between oil changes, and i dont think its burnin any of it....

    Now i just put together a stroker motor for my jeep (made my 4.0 a 4.6L)

    Im wondering if i pull both trans and engine if its possible that i could do the half case??

    Or is there so many special tools and knowledge it will make it impossible for me?

    I figure if im fixiing the tranny, i might as well save the tranny labor and do both myself.....

    Or pull both and have someone fix the half case

    Thought please, i need to get a car back

    Thanks

    Joe

    ah....thanks..

    that really doesnt look that bad??

    So i wouldnt be messign with the crank or anything.....or are the bearing in that half case?

    What do you all need to buy (looks like alignment tool for sure) and cost to due this?

    That might be an easy thing to do if the engine is already out.......

    Re: help me find the how to on half case seal replacement

    ah....so it looks like the half case is one complete main bearing cap so to speak....im still ok with that...

    Where can i buy these alignment pins and the oil plate you have to get??

    Is there a better spot to post this as no one ever answers.....im used to the old site, not having 500 different categories.
