Also will I be able to mount the engine so as to allow access to replace the rear oil seal?


CAN tire should have some options?

1000lb stand is usually more stable with the TDI on it but the 750 is sufficient (remember that you may be adding the equivalent of 150lbs of weight when torquing large bolts)

Yes on some stands having enough room in the Tdi mounting with room to access the rear seal - look at offset depth on the arms and mount them high on the block (limits rotation as the weight is far off center)

I usually just use the engine hoist to hold the engine while I install the rear main seal. I've also just put the block on a work bench to do it.
