    To install the seal I used four of the crank bolts (I have an eight bolt crank) and four washers with the old seal to draw the new seal into place. I positioned the new seal first then got the old...

    My car is an auto and came with the 12 mm seal - 10/06 build.

    It clearly says the 8mm seal supersedes the 12 mm seal in RealOEM.

    You might be able to buy the 12 mm seal due to warehouses...

    Absolutely, I've installed enough seals and bearing races to know little taps all around work better than big taps.

    From the witness marks on the crankshaft after 110,000 miles it sure looks like...

    Interesting, the pins weren't seated in the connector housing and I guess they were making intermittent contact. You probably could have pushed on the wire as well as pulled on the pin. Either way...

    I was also under the impression the new seal supersedes the old seal.

    Using the old seal as the "install tool" is a pretty good idea. I will install it flush with the block.

    I removed a leaky 12mm wide seal from my engine (11117584398) and am replacing it with the newer version, 8mm wide seal (11117587168). I notice the old seal has two grooves in it that are supposed to...

    Exactly. That is why I would want to improve the stock seal for the oil pan. Auto manufacturers make a lot of money on maintenance.

    I have my oil pan off right now and I am waiting on a new gasket in the mail. I notice the rubber of the old gasket got brittle in the 110,000 miles or so it was on the car. If I had to guess, I...
