300ZXTT - replacing crankshaft seal.

#1 Post by mudgripz » Mon Jan 04, 2016 3:20 pm

Have a small oil leak from crankshaft seal. Can anyone advise is this a major or an easier fix? Any special tools required - price of parts?

Anyone know who could do this job in Chch?

minor but major. might as well replace the timing belt and tensioner and a new crank gear at the same time.

the hardest part would be removing the crank gear 90% of the time there seized onto the crank making it difficult to remove and most people just cut the crank gear off with a dremel and cut off wheel/ grinder and buy a new crank gear.

replacing the seal itself isn't to hard but getting to it is time consuming.
