Oil pan gasket

Report to Moderator

I have a WD45 that has a pretty healthy oil leak at or near the front main seal. It leaks steadly when the engine is running. What is the best approach to remedy this? Can a front main seal be effectively be repaired/replaced w/o taking out/dropping the crank?
AND Where can a guy just buy a pan/main gaskets?
Note:I ordered 4 manifold bolts from my local dealer and it only took 2+ weeks!
Any help is appreciated.

I'm in the process of repairing the same problem on a WD. The front seal is a press in type that is just behind the crank pulley. I pulled of the rad. and took loose the hand crank to make pulling the pulley easier. I was able to work the old seal out and tap (gently) the new seal back in. As far as I can tell the worst case senario would be to have to pull the timing cover. I haven't taken off the pan yet but it looks like it is a just a matter of taking the bolts loose and dropping the pan. I might have to take the steering shaft loose to move it over a bit, but nothing too serious. I can't see any reason to take the crank loose. My local dealer had the seals in stock.
