Did I just completely hose myself?

    I turned in my old block for a reman 350 block but forgot to take off the rear main seal housing. I've got an '87-'95 TBI 350 that uses a one piece rear main seal and there is a housing that bolts over the back of the crank with 4 bolts that covers the rear main seal. The oil pan gasket goes over this housing as well so without a replacement I cannot install the rear main seal or the oil pan.

    Where can I find one without going to the dealership for my annual exam. I also don't want to go to the junkyard and spend a half day separating a tranny from an engine just for one little part. Any ideas?

    Should be able to go to any local speed/engine machine shop as they usually have core blocks sitting around that you might be able to get the part from.

    Go back to the place you got it from. If they're reputable, they'll let you pull it off.

    Bought it as a full reman from Autozone for $1000. They are just a middle man for the shop that does the work (Evergreen, out of Washington just north of me) and so I got a call in to the Manager at Autozone. He'll have to call Evergreen on Monday. My block went back to them as a core 6 months ago and I just now got around to putting the engine in. Doh!
