Hey guys. I have been searching and havent found answers to these. Can you guys help me out? And im sure this will help future supra owners with the same problems.

1. How do you actually know if the seal is blown by looking at it after everything is taken apart and you see the seal?

2. The hardest part of this procedure is actually not the crank bold. it is the old seal itself. What methods did you guys use to remove the old seal?

1. Oily residue or a "stream" exiting the bottom of the seal, possibly a puddle in front of the bottom of the seal.

2. Multiple methods. Drill tiny holes all around, insert a shap tool and begin pulling/prying at it. Shop manual has another methold of slicing it in certain angles. Others may have more ideas, try reading/searching the FMS sticky thread.

Look for oil around the seal/timing belt. Mine blew but from looking at the seal I couldn't tell it was blown. Looked exactly the same as the new one I put in.

Take a flat head screwdriver and pound any side of the old seal until it's dented. This should push out the other side of the seal enough to pull it out. Worked well for me.

To remove seal I drilled two small holes on either side of the seal. I got two 1 1/2 in sheet metal screws and flattened the point off of them. I screwed the screws in and once they bottomed out agains the oil pump gear it pushed the seal out. Again: it is important to take the sharp edge off your screws so that you will not mark the gear!

When I took my seal out the little center section was sitting on the crank. To remove the old seal, screw a tiny screw into it and pull it out.
