  • Rear main seal question

    I'm sure this has been asked before.. will be converting my 60' lark wagon (259) to dual exhaust.. My oil pan gasket/rear main seal need replacing.. would be a good time to attack this before the new exhaust gets installed.. can the pan be dropped with the engine sitting on its mounts? Any advice would be appreciated..

    I've never had to do it but I've heard the center steering pivot has to be removed.

      thesteering bellcrank has to come off to remove the pan on a Lark or Avanti. Just remove the inner tierods, and if you have PS remove the ram end from the front of the bellcrank. Remove the pinchbolt, then remove the four bolts{two long and two short} that hold the bellcrank support to the crossmember and drop it out. Set the bellcrank aside and drop the oil pan. Lucky C-K owners only have to turn the steering to full lock. Enjoy! KP
