    What to do while changing rear main

    The leak went from fairly small to very large when I put it back together, so I'm thinking it's gotta be something I messed up. I also use permatex Right Stuff. Best sealer out there. Wheich 4 corners did you use it on?

    My M1009 leaks slowly from the rear main seal, and I want to fix it. I had a 350 SBC with a 2 piece rear main do the same thing, and I ignored it for 10k miles until it suddenly spat all the oil out on the road. So I'm trying to not make the same mistake with the 6.2 in my CUCV. I want to do...
