    That stinks. What type of rear main seal is used on these cranks?

    Well that just sux... while its a fair amount of labor to fix as the trans needs to be pulled its actually a high quality full circle seal. It probably was damaged at the engine plant... never had a problem with my 5.7, 6.1 they are NOT known to be leakers. Compared to the old Big and Small blocks rear seals these have been bullet proof.
