I pulled ea81t engine yesterday to take a look at leaking exaust valve. While I'm in there I'd like to reseal things, but have a couple of question. I seperated engine from bellhousing, where is rear main seal, behind plate on engine side? How do I remove oil pump? Does SOA offer a kit to reseal power steering pump? Has anyone used aftermaket oil pump reseal kit, how good are they? One of the intake manifold bolts had orange powdery rust on it, does this mean i have gasket leak?

-Rear main seal is behind the torque converter drive plate.

-The oil pump has 4 small bolts holding it on, then it pulls straight out. It is sometimes useful to loosen the engine case bolt located just above the pump to ease removal of the pump.

-I've used both SOA and aftermarket oil pump reseal kits, and noticed no real difference between them.
