FREND HAS A 85 F150 4X4 302 ENG WITH LEAK AT BACK OF TRANY NOT THE PAN, TRANSFERCASE IS OFF HOW DO I GET AT THE SEAL PS PAN IS A 20 BOLT
The seal itself resembles the engine crankshaft oil seals, or wheel bearing dust shields, so its a circular metal and rubber donut basically. The seal is inside the back of the tranny where the yoke come in, and will require a special tool kit to pull it out and put it back in. To get one, just go to your local parts store or any store where they sell mechanics tools and they will be at least able to order a kit for you. In some cases, some store even rent the tools you need. For example, where i live our local Canadian Tire store rents them at no cost, you just give a deposit that's the price of the kit just in case you break it or don't return it, and when you bring it back in one piece they give you the whole deposit back tax and all. Just ask the store of your choice for a shaft seal removal/instalation kit and they should understand perfectly what you mean, if they don't, then just tell them its a special puller kit to take out the crankshaft and yoke seals. If they still don't understand, go to another store cause those guys are anything but professionnals or experts.:P Once you get the kit, it's just a question of inserting the tip into the end of the tranny far enough so the teeth can grip the seal and pull it out. And to put the new one back in, you can either use the kit again, or theres always the good old trick of hitting a big ratchet socket the same size as the seal with a good ol' hammer while being careful so that the seal doesn't go in sideways or crooked so you don't bend it or scrap it.
