"rear main seal" - really? If I found a Corvair mechanic that called the front crankshaft seal that I'd run. He outta stick to water pumpers.

whatever shop you go to, bring the Clark's catalog with you, leave it with them in case they get stuck needing a part.

The rear of the engine attaches the the trans, just like water pumpers. Its just that the engine is in backwards.

When someone says rear main, I know exactly what they are talking about, whether its correct or not.

And if I said "left main seal" you would think that proper and fully understood by other people?confused smiley I say most new cars* today have those.

* Not Vehicles, as that would include trucks and SUVs.
