I recently purchased a 71 Fury III equipped with a 360 CID engine. The previous owner stated that the car was a 27K original mile survivor and after inspecting the car and driving it, I don't doubt it. The car has a rear main seal oil leak and after speaking with several mechanics, the consensus of opinions is that the engine should be removed from the car to do the job properly. Most guys also recommend changing out the freeze out plugs while the engine is out of the car. Most shops will charge about $800 labor and about $100 for parts so I'm going to tackle the job myself. I'm not sure if it's easier to remove the engine and tranny as a unit or if the engine should be disconnected from the tranny while the tranny is in the car and left in place. Any thoughts or personal experiences? Thanks, Jim
