I am replacing my main seal because I screwed up last time and developed a bad leak.

I need to know if it is okay to oil the crankshaft and seal to help slip it into place?
Quick replies would be nice as I would like to get this done tonight.

Thanks guys,

-Chris

when i've changed it, i've always bought the entire kit, so including the metal piece around the outside. But I've used assembly lube on it when i was installing without any leak, so I wouldn't think it would be a problem.

Yes, if you don't lube it slightly it's prone to tear going in.
