    How to replace rear crankshaft seal

    I got flywheel out and am looking at rear crank seal. It looks like it is leaking. Was told these things are hard to replace but it looks easy. Any tips in doing this?

    Use a pick or small flat head to pull the old one out. Or screw a screw in the old one and pull it out. Then carefully tap the new one going around and around until it sits flush with the plate that bolts to the block. Sorry forgot the name.

      i was told this was so hard and had to lineup perfectly and some special tool was need to set it in their right or something. This is easy!

        Yep no special tool needed. Just a rubber mallet to tap around it, working it slowly in.

          good to hear as no worry about it leaking once i put it in. New tranny, new clutch, flywheel and crank seal. Oh boy. Car is mechanically new almost.

            The Honda manual does specify a special tool to set the seal to the right depth in the plate. At least from Honda, you used to be able to purchase the plate with the seal already installed.

              i just banged it in with a rubber mallet and the old one on it till it went all teh way in. I think before it was flush with outer surface. Which is jsut a mm or 2. I doubt this will matter, right?

                You should be fine. I think the manual says it should sit at a certain depth, but I always did mine flush or slightly protruding out which by slight I mean Millimeters.
