I am hoping to fix the repeat leaks from my rear main seal.
What seal is used for the 1 piece rear main seal?
Is it a special seal?
Machine dimensions?
Hints, tips?
Thank you.

I know of none that fit a 351C. Tim Meyer has done it, but it requires some serious machine work. I've been using the two piece on every 351C I've done and not had any leak issues, so not sure what might be causing your problem?

I use a Felpro 2921. The block and rear cap have to be bored to fit it.

The only time I had a problem with a 2 piece seal leaking was when I forgot to remove that stupid pin from inside the cap.
