The oil pan is off of my '85 Blazer (305). I have the one piece Felpro gasket & a new pan. Besides scraping all the crud off the mating surface, what else should I be concerned with?

Are these the front & rear main seals I'm looking at? Shouldn't I replace them if I'm here?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the quick reply.
How are the seals removed & replaced? I just checked a couple repair manuals but there is no detail pertaining to seals. They look as though an awl would yank them out. Is this all there is to it? For all the crying I've heard from folks whose seals leak, I would think there is a great amount of difficulty. Is there?

the rear main seal is in the rear cap. take the cap off and you will see the seal. take a small pick and push the upper seal around the crank till you can get at it. when you install the new one make sure you use the little installer to prevent damaging the inside. and do the same to the cap. and reinstall and torque it down.
these are covered in the engine rebuild section of the haynes manual.
