Plenty of theories about how to best install a rope rear main oil seal in the Holden V8 block from the HJ model years through to the last ones produced in the VT Commodores. We've found this to be the most fool proof procedure. A bit long winded perhaps, but if you do it this way your rear main seal will not leak.

Project GM Holden 253 V8
The beginnings of my 253ci Holden V8 restoration project!
[ project shelved indefinitly due to lack on income to spend on it] -
The engine was a $100 junkyard find, having spent a number of years outside
in the weather it is in rough shape, but not too far gone!
My primary assessment determined that it needs a bearing kit, bore hone,
gasket kit, lifters, maybe a cam shaft, rebuilt heads, sump and rocker
covers, carburetor, and possibly more ancillary equipment.
Either way its a great learning experience that I encourage any gearhead to
undertake at some stage in their life!
