Front crankshaft seal 4.7L
The front crankshaft seal, as it sits on the front of the timing cover, is leaking. Not too horribly but I'd like to get it replaced. I purchased the seal and took a long look with a sigh laying under the front end.
I have read some forums that talk about being able to do it without removing the radiator. I don't see how I can get the puller in there without hitting the metal cooler (I am lost as to what it is called) that sits between the radiator fan and the pulley/balancer.
Has anyone done this? Normally I am game for any repair but if I am pulling the radiator, I don't want to have to piss with tranny fluid or radiator fluid. Plus it has to get me to work daily.
