I am a frequent poster over on www.thirdgen.org
but have been reading posts on here for quite some time.
I have a turbo 350 that is leaking from the front pump seal and thought I would ask on here what all I should do to fix the leak.
I have gathered so far that replacing the seal itself is not a big deal once I have the transmission out but I am wondering if there is something else I should attempt to replace to make sure I dont have a leak when Im done.
Specifically I have read that a large clearance between the converter snout and pump front bushing can cause a leak through the front seal because the drain hole is small. Should I also look to replace the bushing while the trans is out?
I am not sure how much extra work is involved in changing this bushing. Do I have to remove the pump?
Thanks for any help.
