front crank seal is easy to change pop off belt and harmonic balancer(no puller needed), pull off front timing cover i cant remember if you need to pull the fan support or not and the crank seal is in the cover...use Right Stuff to seal up the front cover after you clean with brake clean. reassemble.

i forgot to add that the crank seal from cummins is like 30$ when i got one.

well i couldnt believe it but the whole problem
was my water pump. took it to a diesel shop in the next town
and he called a couple hours later said it was done.
i just about crapped my pants when he said it was
the pump leaking and picking up dirt and grim
off the motor. the fluid leaking was as black as oil
and it cost only 300 bucks. so that shop has a new
customer.

thanks guys

I need a better description. So when Installing the timing cover after the you have installed teh crank seal in the cover. You physically take the plastic alignment tool and place it over the crankshaft snout ? I see the tool is tapered and by placing it on the crank the seal will contact the alignment tool on the bigger end first. Is that how they want you to do this ? I feel like a moron

thats correct. use some kind of grease(probably not molly just a good red or white or a lithium) on the seal and the crank so the seal isnt dry when you start it.
