I just had my tranny rebuilt and for some stupid reason i did not change the rear main seal. now the truck is all back together and the rear main stared leaking:(. so i get to pull it apart again.

I made the same mistake when having my motor replaced.. when I picked it up I thought to myself "I should have thrown a rear main seal set and a front pump seal in the truck"

When we put the motor back in our Ranger, we had replaced the throwout bearing, but I didn't change the slave cylinder... Not even 200 miles later, it was pouring its life blood on the ground... But at leas the 2.3 got a new pilot bushing and rear main seal.
