Rear Main Seal
Good afternoon. My next project is to replace the leaking rear main seal on my 1952 Hornet with the set from Best gasket. While I know the best practice is to remove the engine, I am not in a position to do so at this time, so I am going to attempt the replacement with the engine still in the car. I have reviewed various threads on this forum concerning the subject, and feel reasonably confident. One question that I have concerns removing the rear cap. The service manual says to use Puller J-2955. I know that AutoZone rents automotive tools. Does anyone here know if I can rent a tool that will do the job? Also, what type of "punch" have folks used to pack the cotton wicking in the vertical holes?
