Back to the leak: I haven't seen anyone else mention this.

Regarding the rear main seal (assuming it's not an early rope seal), words of wisdom from Arvin Appleman from when I replaced mine: "When you install the seal make sure you hold it back aprox. 0.100" or it will leak like a sieve."

What I did to accomplish this was to take two blank CDs (they don't have to be blank, that's just what I had) and use them as a spacer when installing the seal. I measured two CDs at .095" thick. It seemed to work well.
