I have been working on my SR20 (s13 redtop) swap for 6 months and everything has finally come together but there was an oil leak coming from the back of the engine. I was hoping the rear main seal wasn't installed right, so we dropped the transmission, took out the clutch and fly wheel to find out the rear oil seal retainer is cracked in several places. Apparently my mechanic buddy didn't take out the bolts or tightened it too much when removing/install the oil pan.

Here's my problem, I'm moving in 2 days and I can't find a new one on all the major part sites I visit. So my question is... will the SR20DE FWD part work... I heard it will not.. but I need confirmation... if not will someone sell me one... or can you direct me to a place I can buy a new one?

Thanks in advance. I need help ASAP!

Sorry to hear man.. im pulling my tranny soon to fix my rear seal leak also very soon. I replaced the seal during the rebuild but i forgot to grease it :crazyrant :smacked49

Anyhow.... try some good ol JB weld on that sucker. I swear it works very well if the surface is VERY clean and given a day or so to fully harden.

It's cracked way too bad to try to repair, I need to buy a new/used one that hasn't been abused :( Oh and after further research I'm pretty sure it got cracked because the two bolts behind the cover weren't removed when trying to drop the upper oil pan.... live and learn!
