89 Cherokee Rear Main Seal Replacment
1989 Jeep Cherokee Pioneer 6cyl 4.0 4X4 Link to the Tutorial I used: http://youtu.be/f5o5sZbCEsw When I got the jeep the previous owner said there might have been an oil leak from the rear main seal or oil pan. I didn't notice anything but I was doing a good part of a full engine rebuild and I know how prone these are to failing so I figured I'd give it a whack. A lot of whacks to be precise. For removal, you're going to want a dedicated punch, a nice hammer, and the strength to not want to set it all on fire afterwards. I also used a pick and slid that between the seal and the block to try and break some of the seal loose. It seemed to work. Just keep hitting it, It moves eventually, just depends on how long you stay at it. Take frequent breaks. When Installing, you want to really soap up the crank area and take it real slow with the seal. If you find that it takes a lot of force then stop and look at where the seal meets the outer edge of the engine. Make sure you don't skin the seal forcing it in too hard. You'll have to start over with a new seal and that isn't fun. Once it slides in most of the way, you can try use the punch to gently knock it in the rest of the way. The bottom half is much easier in comparison. Rtv on the side tabs, then torque it down to 80ft-lbs and add sealant to the chamfered edges as well. The end.
