Re: [DML] Re: Oil leek



All of these are good answers. If you do have to go after the front seal, I recommened one of Grady's remanufactured crank pulleys and his double-lip crank seal.  
 
You will have to remove the exhaust muffler, heat shield, and fascia stiffener plate.  You will never get the pulley nut off with a wrench, so get your hands on a high-powered impact gun to remove it.  Before you pull the pulley off of the crank (It will just slide off if you put a couple of big flathead screwdrivers behind it and CAREFULLY and EVENLY pry it off), for the love of God, make sure the wooddruff key thing is at 12 O'Clock!!  If it is anywhere below 10 or 2 O'Clock, it will probably fall out and drop into the oil pan.  NOW you have a REAL problem!!!!!
 
When you put the new seal in, make sure you put some anaerobic sealant on the outside of the seal, and some clean motor oil around the lips and on the pulley surface.  The pulley has to go on perfectly straight or else it can bend one of the lips inside and shave it off on your first revolution.  This happened to me and my crank pulley was constantly 'misting' oil off of it until i fixed it a few days later.
 
There are worse jobs on a DeLorean, but this is one of those that you have to hope you did right the first time or else you may learn some new cuss words.

Before you go after the crank pulley seal make sure the oil pressure
switch on the left rear of the motor is not the leak. It runs down
onto the rail and can look like the seal or the crankcase gasket. Easy
to fix or replace. The crak pulley seal can be done with the motor in
the car. Easier to remove the rear facia ythan the motor but not
necessary. Removing the muffler can also make it easier than removing
the motor.
