In taking it apart to do the vac test I pulled the flywheel. To my surprise there was a lot of caked gunk back there, something I couldn't see when I peeped behind with the flywheel on.

I did the vac test and it was holding at about 45...don't know of mercury or something.

Then I got the bright idea to do a pressure test. But instead of using my brake vac device I got the leak tester. So I sit pressure at 40 and though i felt a small leak so I went to 50.

This got in before the picture of glasses
I decided to put on NEW gaskets and a NEW seal on flywheel side(other side already done) and give her a try. I checked the iso plate for flatness. But it was changed out anyway.

Just as I was lowering my face toward the air leak the crankshaft seal blew out and hit my grasses
