I took the Elk out to a friend's shop. The rear main seal is leaking again. Going to change the transmission from a th200 to 2004r. Also going to change the rear gears from 2.41 to 3.73.

Thanks. The rear main seal was leaking. I had put it in backwards. I thought that the thick side was to go forward instead of the oil lip. We are putting in a 4 piece pan gasket. We got the cork glued to the block today.

I got the new rear main seal installed and pan back on. Got the 2004r transmission bolted up to the engine.

I brought the El Camino home today. Didn't travel over 35 mph. I need to wire in the torque converter to the toggle switch.

I wired the torque converter up to a toggle switch and then from the switch to fuse panel. This is a temporary fix. I hope to wire it into an electronic cruise control.

I did some painting on the tailgate where it got scuffed up a bit.
