Subject: Re: Changing Crankshaft Pulley

Hi John, Here is the Deal with your crankshaft pulley! Removed the inner fender well behind the right hand side wheel, remove the belts and the center bolt on the pulley ( I believe it is a 38 MM although it has been a while) Once you remove the crank pulley you will see a seal that rest in the center of the oil pump housing. (Ideally, with the crank pulley off you should probably replace the oil pump o-ring as well but that is another story all together) Simply pull the seal out of the center of the oil pump housing by prying it out with a screw driver and install the new seal in its place just insert the seal where it is flat and even with the oil pump housing. We would normally put loctite around the edges of the seal to make sure that it would stay put. It is actually a very easy job. I have replaced hundreds over the years. Hopefully this will help.
