Hey guys, I just finished changing my rear main seal the other day and started it up for a test and it started leaking quite a bit more(I've never done this before), there's a couple different things I'm gonna try this time around but I'm just wondering if its as simple as if I put it on backwards... all the directions say is to put the lip toward the front of the engine(am I the only one who thinks this is vague).

Anyways I just wanna check and make sure before I put everything back together...

On top of that I plan on clocking the seal so the break on the seal isn't the same as the break between between the block and the main cap

Trying a traditional cork gasket instead of this one piece rubber one on the pan

and using a lot more RTV

If anyones got any suggestions, tips, or advice I'd appreciate it... tryin to get this done before the next cold front haha

Did it have a rubber or rope seal in it when you went to change it?

If you left that little stud in the lower cap, it will leak.

Make sure the seal lip is the right way.

Offset the seal about 1/8 to 3/16 of an inch.

There's no reason to use gobs of RTV on the pan, as it will eventually find its way onto the pickup screen.
