The first thing I did when the block came back home was paint the oil pan to match the rest of the block. I had never taken the old front and rear seals out, so out they came. Next, I put the new front and rear seals back in and then used a special tool to get the harmonic balancer back in properly without damaging the seal or the block.

Next came a little measuring of the crank shaft snout to the hub of the harmonic balancer, and finally the insertion of the new ARP harmonic balancer bolt.
