Still have not explained where the leak you are talking about is located. There is an oil pan and an engine block, nothing on Ford parts says "upper crankcase"
I'm not going to pay for that, the leak stopped I think, only brake fluid.
Here is where I am at. I am not going to have them remove flywheel, will not need the FW or the $30 in bolts. I am returning FW and seal and will save $130.
He quoted me same labor with or without the seal change. He even said I could JUST replace the slave to save money, but the whole kit was only $149 vs like $40-something for slave only.
The factory FW does not chatter or slip, and the factory one is top quality, they are like $600 from ZF, the supplier to Ford.
Only thing dripping is brake fluid. To fix a very minor leak, I'll wait until it needs an engine. I cannot for the life of me find the one-time use CV nut, they are ALL rear ones. There must be a USA shortage? Ones I used 2 yrs. ago when brakes were done are listed at FIFTY-THREE dollars each, NO WAY!
Have a picture of the "upper crankcase gasket" ?
