Replacing the rear main seal.... '89 daytona Shelby 2.2. I bought a FELPRO seal. The FSM says to use Anerobic sealant on the seal prior to install. However the instructions for this seal says don't. Anybody know why? Should I use sealant anyway?

Because the FSM was written in 1989 and the seal uses newer chemicals/coatings/technology.

When in doubt, go straight to the horses mouth.

The seal instructions say not to lubricate the seal lip or the crankshaft. The FSM is telling you to apply sealant to the ouside of the seal casing which fits into the engine block or casting. You should follow both instructions.

Agree, and anaerobic sealer on the block side of the seal retainer if it gets removed.

Same for front and intermediate shaft seal retainers.

Anaerobic is not sloppy old silicone!!

Its specifically for those spots.

Thanks

Yeah i took the housing off the block, popped the old seal out, put new one in, reinstalled the housing (with the new seal installed) in the block using Anaerobic sealant.
