Does anyone have instructions on the correct way to put in a front timing cover seal without taking it off? I ordered the seal kit, but it didnt come with any instructions..Thanks.

Instructions are the same as for tabbing the KDP here http://www.tstproducts.com/DowelPina.pdf
If you haven't tabbed the KDP now is the time.
+2.7!! do it while its off your pretty much done the KDP. as for the gasket i had to take a 90 degree grinder to get off my stock gasket on. the seal should press into the timing cover and slide on with a little effort

I agree. Since you're ther I'd go ahead and tab that sucker!! You'll have to do all of that work again to tab it anyways. One of those while I'm here situations.

There is a tool made by Lisle, name may not be correct, but it's availible at most parts houses. It's a seal remover, it will work on both the front and rear seals and also the pinion seal. You can also drill 2 holes in the metal portion of the seal then screw in some small screws and use a pry bar to pop the seal out. Have done it this way numeros times and not have to remove the cover.
