It's the oil pump seal. If you do want to change it and you have a 700r4, this seal needs to be red locktited in place. A TH400 just needs to be driven in.

Auto parts stores may not sell it. Pick one up at a tranny shop.

Pull the engine and tranny together. No problem.
What do you mean by "red lock righted in?" I do believe it is a 700r4.

89 Chevy dually seized engine removal


Thanks for all the advise guys!!! I got the seized motor out by removing the tranny bolts. Good thing I'm a Chevy guy! I had enough room to fit my fat hands behind the engine to get the top ones so we got both motors pulled today. Tomorrow I'm pressure washing the engine compartment and changing the steering gearbox and hydraboost unit while the motor is out. Then ill be changing all the accessories off the seized engine and putting them on the new one. Hopefully next weekend ill have the truck back together. I gotta figure out the wiring harness though. I wanted to use the one on the new engine but has less wires and harnesses than the one on my seized one. Problem is there's a lot of bare wires and broken connectors... Its a potential problem...

If you ever change the front pump seal on a 700r4, apply red locktite around the edge before driving it in.

Keep your existing harness with the new motor if possible. Use the sensors from the seized motor.
