    Next I'm taking the crank out for quick inspection, then cleaning the inside of block and then installing a new rear main seal.

    Got the crank loose from the rods pushed them all the way down in the bore and removed the crank and cleaned the old rear main seal groove and prepped the rear main cap, then reassemble, now I'll pull the engine out of the regal and do a cam and timing set swap and button this engine back up.
