My rope seal is leaking on my Buick 350.<BR>I know that 2-piece rubber seals are available. <BR>Question: Can these rope seals be replaced <BR>w/ the rubber ones whlie the crankshaft remains in the block?

I see you're not getting many responses over there either. I think what you want to do can be done, in fact I think some auto parts stores carry a tool to do it. Good Luck.

Yes, it can be done...I've just done it about 2 months ago. I had to loosen up the bearing caps just enough to free up the crank. The new seals slide right in. As John mentions, go to <A HREF="http://www.buickperformance.com...they" TARGET=_blank>www.buickperformance.com...they</A> helped me through this and many other projects so far.<BR>Best buch of Buick nuts around!<P>pwm72@hotmail.com
