406 ss monte i found a repair sleeve at advance auto for $12.00.

406 ss monte do you have a part number on the offset seal? the sleeve is $41.00 & then i would still need a rear seal. thats to expensive.

There's no way that I know of to repair the crank aside from welding and it would be about the same cost to buy a new crankshaft.

chrisape I made a jig from a 6" x 6" plate of CRS, tapped 4 holes in the plate, mounted the rear seal housing, indicated the center, and bored it with a Bridgeport. Super easy and works great!

That's a good idea! I'm gonna try one Monday.

NAPA (C/R) Part Number 99364 is what you want.

Be prepared to grab your ankles, though ... they ain't cheap.
Looks like $42.00 US, which is less than I thought.

woodz428 I would second the redi-sleeve suggestion. They are stainless steel and very thin, they work great. I have used them on sevral applications, the last one was on an MG-TD crank. They are made for all sorts of applications where ther is excess wear on a seal area. They are made for harmonic balancer noses that get too worn from the seal as well.

rear main seal ate up my crank

i've got a crank out of a 1 piece rear main 305 block & the rear main seal has ate two grooves in the rear of the crank where the seal rides. i was wondering how this is fixed? do they make a sleeve for it like they do balancers? do i have it welded & reground? do i trash it? it's a cast crank, but i still hate to just trash it.
