Just had engine in my TJ rebuilt due to a poor oil pan install after new oil pump was put in. Wheeled the following weekend and sandy water flooded the pan past an improperly installed pan gasket. Yes...liquid sandpaper throughout the engine.
So now...the engine runs perfectly again BUT...I have a major leak at the rear. Swapped the new DNJ main seal with a better Fel-Pro seal. SAME leak...major. Also checked for leak from valve cover and all other usual suspect places. All bone dry.
Now I am in process of pulling the TRANSMISSION and am going to check the rear block plugs. Once trans is out...since I can't start it...I will pull the OPDA and run a priming rod with my 3/8 drill and eyeball the rear of the block to see what gives.
Wish me luck and free beer deliveries. I may need plenty of both before it's over! And I will post my findings.
