Doesnt look like I'll be getting the upper seal out. So I'll just have to leave it and move on. The only way to get it out is to take the entire crank out.

Edit: Fully decided not to do the upper seal. If its anything like the lower seal it will just tear off in there and make things worse. So I'll put everything back tonight and should be done except for the exhaust needing to be welded.

Well the pan is on by a shop. Though the RMS looks like it may still be leaking.  :pissed:

Thats the way the cookie crumbles.

On a side note someone had the shop weld my exhaust together for a total of $66 when tomorrow I was going to have a friend do it for free.  :shaking: Incompitant idiot...

Sealing oil pans can be a pain sometimes. I have seen two different types of gaskets for the oil pan. One is better than the other and hard to explain why on the computer. The RMS may be leaking because the upper and lower seal should be replaced as a set.

It was no muffler haha, thats the exhaust was cut off right before the cat so technically it was a straight pipe I think?

Though you likely already knew all that.
