Ok. It's the simplest things that drive me nuts. I can't for the life of me figure out how the oil seal goes on.

Here is my cover and the new seal. I thought it would just be a matter of tapping the new one in. Do I have the wrong seal?

Looks like the old one is stil in place,so first you've got to drive that one out.I have used a large socket app the same size as the seal,although a small block of wood may also work.The new one has to be driven in perfectly even,if it goes in crooked,you may as well drive it back out and get another one.Take your time doing this.

I kind of thought that, but looking at the back of the cover, it all looked like one piece so I was hesitant to beat on it. Thanks for the quick response!

You may also want to check the condition of the snout and add a repair sleeve if there is any grooves or wear on the shaft. If not done then the new seal will leak and you will have to repeat the proceedure. I automatically do this to every SBC engine I rebuild, just as insurance!!

Felpro also makes a REAR sleeve repair kit for "One Piece" rear main seals!

THERE IS A METAL LIP PROTECTING IT FROM THE BACK, SO DON'T BEAT ON THAT OR YOU'LL RUIN THE COVER. Go around/inside the lip to tap the old one out.

yup, go around in a circle with a tapered punch and ball peen hammer, slowly work it out. put a very thin layer of sealant around the new seal and place a 2 x 4 over the seal when driving it back in, just keep it square and you'll be just fine.
