Default Replacing The Front Seal

Anyone got instructions on how to replace the front crank seal with the cover still on the engine?
I'd rather not have to pull the dang cover off,thanks in advance folks!

As far as I know, the timing cover must come off to replace the crank seal. Probably not what you want to hear.

grab a service manual if you dont already have one, you should be able to tell from the pics if it is possible or not.

I find you are usually better off to pull the cover to inspect and check all the bolts.

I have changed a few on the truck and it's not too much of a pain. The trick is to get the depth right. But you can go beyond flush a bit if you have a small leak and it'll seal it right up.
