    Ok, we're all familiar with how a one piece seal is changed...but which is better, to change it with the appliance ON or OFF the block?

    Is it worth it to remove the appliance, or can you save a little time to do it on the engine?

    They can be quickly and easily changed on the truck with the correct tool.

    I've seen the gasket on the seal adapter leak where it seals to the engine block, when I was that close I would change the seal and the gasket to prevent having to come back and change the gasket later.

    I took the adapter off the block so I could put a new felt gasket behind the adapter...It was easy enough...
