Rear main seal

Postby 68383 » Fri Mar 18, 2016 5:07 pm

I put the stroker engine in my Super Bee in the Fall of 2014 and within about 100 miles, I noticed the rear main seal was leaking.

I was pretty ripped, and decided to let the car sit while I figured out what I'd do. I'm not a mechanic and my garage isn't the most productive place on earth to work on big projects.

A neighbor referred me to another guy down the street who doesn't currently have a Mopar, but he's had plenty of them. This guy is also set up to do work like removing engines, etc. He and I talked today and he's happy to tackle the job after he gets a crazy Nomad finished for another guy.

So I'll hopefully be back on the street with the Super Bee later this year. Keep your fingers crossed.

Are you going with a one piece seal kit this time?

My buddy bought me a kit, I think from Mancini. I'll snap a picture when I'm home.

That's great news, Dave.

I think it has been a shame to let that sweet Super Bee sit like that.

Pissedoffness and other priorities made me procrastinate!

Just heard from the guy down the street yesterday. The Nomad's almost done. He needs to put a carpet (and some other small project) in his old convertible Vette, then he should be able to take my car.

I wouldn't waste my money on the $80 rear seal. The inexpensive factory style has been sealing engines just fine for years and cost way less.
