    Ahhh, my front pump seal blew out pulling this freaking jeep...err heep. He burned up the clutch trying to make it up test hill. It was surprisingly difficult towing the heep through the sand. Even the F-250 that pulled me out to the parking lot had a harder time pulling this jeep. I think he had his parking brake on or his clutch welded to the crank shaft. WTF!!

    Seals don't blow out. I bet your front pump bushing is shot too.

    The 700's never had that problem with the lack of oil drainback for the front (converter) seal, blowing it out?

    200's did, fix was to make the return passage larger. So yes, seals DO blow out.

    Granted, never up on the 700 that much, but if the pump is anything like the 200, fluid ends up behind the seal in operation. I *thought* I had seen factory clips on the converter seal to try and prevent this.

    Maybe it didnt literally "blow out", but its definatly not seated because I could see it had fallen off, that and it just gushes fluid when the engine is running.

    I forgot to put the seal retainer on last time it was off. I hammered the seal in so I didn't think it was nescessary to remove the whole thing again just to put a stupid clip on, well whos the stupid one now /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    At least someone helped you when you where there. People just sat and watch me and the guy i tried to pull out. I blew a bead pulling this dude out and didn't have a spare with me. The other guy was stuck in the swamp for like 4-5 hours, then a Super duty with 46" claws got the job done!
