[DML] Followup on transmission flange seal fix

Some time back I asked the group for some details on the stainless 
sleeve that Rob Grady sells to improve the seal at the flange for 
drive axel.

I'm happy to report that together with a new replacement seal that 
the sleeve fixed my seeping transmission seal problem slicker than a 
whistle. There were no surprises with installation of the setup and 
it went together like a dream. I can see why they warn you to be 
careful getting it started on the shaft straight, but I had no 
trouble getting it on straight the first time and tapped into place.

My final drip I'm fixing next weekend is some weeping at the crank 
seal behind the main belt pulley. I'm sure this has been posted 
before, but I seem to have no luck using the Yahoo search engine 
(and I think the DMCNews one might be a little stale), BUT -- what 
is the nut size on the main crank? I'll need to swing by and pick up 
the proper socket for my impact wrench, and I'd like to ensure I get 
the right one the first time. Is a pulley puller needed to get the 
pulley off after the nut is removed or is it held in plce by the nut 
only (not pressed on)?

For those that are wondering what kind of POS I'm working on, it's 
my daily driver that has roughly 175,000 miles on it. I think having 
to replace a transmission flange seal after that kind of use seems 
pretty reasonable. I finally replaced my original Moto alternator a 
couple weeks ago as well, and I'm pretty satisfied getting 175K 
miles of service out of it. After having my friend's Porsche on my 
lift this weekend, I have really come to appreciate how serviceable 
our DeLoreans are.
