Re: 351 Rear Main Seal Questions
I am leaning towards pulling the crank so, like you say, "I can see and double check everything".
This 351 engine is also from a donor car with an unknown history. Compression tests were ok, and dash oil pressure gauge showed pressure, so I was going to throw it in. Then I found the leak from the rear main. I hadn't thought of changing the oil pump and checking the bearings, but it is a good idea. I don't want to spend heaps though as a reco engine from Repco is only $2000.
Looks like it's back to Repco for an oil pump and plastigauge though.
