tst looks good, didn't even think of them when looking for a kit, do you know if any specialty tools are needed off the top of your head. I have just your standard metric and standard sockets, wrenches, and just common tools.
Yes you will need a engine barring tool a 36mm fan clutch wrench it will also help if you have a serpentine belt tool and a second set of hands :lol3::lol3::lol3::lol3::lol3::lol3::lol3: good luck and it will take you at least half a day if you are mechanically inclined and have all the right tools :thumbsup:thumbsup:thumbsup:thumbsup:thumbsup:thumbsup

I wouldn't bother with the big fan nut, I just take off the whole assembley. I have a manual trans so I don't need a barring tool, but you might like to have one with an automatic.
I have done 2. its real easy. take off the oil fill tube, then fan,(reverse thread), then belt, dampener pully, fan pully, then front case bolts, and its right there. dont even need to take out radiator. you can do it in about 4 to 5 hours. easy as pie. when putting the front main seal on, press it into the case from the back of the cover. then put 2 bolts in the top of the case cover to hold it on the motor, and push front cover onto crank with the seal alignment tool in the actual seal, should slide right over the crank and your golden!
