    My rear main seal is somehow stuck in its housing. It had a pretty substantial leak so I bought a new one to replace it. By looking at the new one It looks like there's a metal coiled ring surrounded by the rubber housing of the seal. I am thinking of taking a propane torch to the stuck seal...
