Thank you Grover. I have some Liquid Wrench in the garage...I'll definitely try that too. I definitely like to take my time, as it's always more time and money if I screw it up.

24in breaker bar and a 2in extension always worked for me on the t-case.

Odds are your cross seals are bad if the leak is at the back of the oil pan. Search this website for how to change them.

I would flush the radiator and check the fan clutch to make sure it is working. Also, make sure the AC electic fans come on.

seems its best to have full access to the rear main seal and cross seals. the www. says just doing cross seals puts the rear main and risk as I was going to do my cross seals while I had the pan off. In theory they are really easy to change, it seems the rear main is very prone to getting messed up during this operation?

I have never seen a rear main messed up doing cross seals. At the dealer we did dozens, if not 100 or more.

So the starter does have to be removed to do these?

Here's what I've done so far:
radiator flushed
engine oil changed
t-case oil changed
trans fluid changed

Going to change the fluids in the diffs and replace the fan clutch this weekend.

Truck still has strong exhaust smell. Is this normal for a D90 with a badger top? I don't have a MIL, but should try swapping the temp sensor? It might also be an exhaust leak. The cats are rattling a bit, so I'll take it to a local shop for the "full monty".

So this is strange...the fan clutch that I got from AB does not match the one on my truck. Furthermore, the fan does not fit (holes don't line up) the new fan clutch.

Did the early 94 trucks have a different fan assembly? It came off, as described here on the site (reverse threaded). The new one seems that it's reverse threaded also.

the on the right looks like the one on my Classic, the one on the left looks like the one on my left, based on the end photo. That fan also looks like the fan on my classic.

It might be the right fan, mine could be wrong IDK. Id like to try some of those flex-a-lite fans I see on the Summit Racing site.

Call Eric at AB and he will figure it out.

This is interesting...I received a viscous fan clutch from Rovers North this afternoon that is just like the old one I replaced (I got impatient and ordered a "replacement" from RN too). When I called Atlantic British they said I had the right "replacement" and told me to order a replacement fan. The new fan came first so I mounted it and got everything running.

Now I have another fan and fan clutch that are compatible, but not on the truck (and different than the replacements from AB). So who is right? LOL anyone need a fan and fan clutch?
