Some days you might as well stay in bed. Had hopes of getting the engine in today, but it ain't happening.

Decided to change the rear seal on the motor before I buttoned it up. Wasn't leaking, but unknown age made me think it wise to just go ahead an do it now instead of it leaking a month down the road. Bought a seal at Oreilly's, FelPro, $25 . Turned out it had a goofy plastic sleeve installation tool with it, supposed to slip it in seal, then over the crank hub, and bump seal in. Yeah, right. Damn plastic piece cut the lip off the seal somehow. It was a teflon seal, it said install it dry, so I did. Last time I follow instructions.

Just ordered one from Rock Auto since I won't get another chance for a few weekends to work on it again, a FelPro rubber seal this time. And it WILL be lubed when I put it in, no matter what the instructions say. $15 for this one, hope it works better.

Mama said there'd be days like this...... She just didn't say there would be so many.
Keep at it Bama.
