Is it a sleeve for the front cover seal to ride on?

If should on the crank after the gears so that seal that's on the cover for the gears rides on it if I remember right

laferty I will put some pictures up as soon as I get home I drive truck so I am only able to work on it on the weekends. and for a few tips on the lpop when u get ready to put your front cover on if you are replacing that just make sure your manifold bolts are loose and set the cover up there start 2 or 3 bolts hand tight then take a bar and put between the cover and oil pan and pry up on it till your oil gears slide in. it work pretty well I fought with mine for a day and a half before I got them in

THAT sleeve is supposed to be in the front oil seal! when your done with the gear install you need a special tool to install the front crank seal. This tool pushes that sleeve onto the crank with the oil seal as one unit.

Absoluty correct!!! The front crank seal has been updated and includes a wear sleve. It must be installed. I bleive there is a special tool, but this is how I have done the last 3 I did.

1. Get oil gears in cover
2. Install the sleeve...I belive there is a bevelved side and a fat side could be wrong Beveled side should face out.
3. With the sleeve started on the crank shaft using a block of wood tap sleeve until flush with crank.
4. Using balancer start all 4 bolts and tighted the balancer down until seated in installed position.
5. Remove balancer and install crank seal housing and seal.
Install balancer and all other removed componets.

Basically you are using the balancer to install the sleeve the rest of the way. After the balancer is removed you will see the sleeve is now set in 1/4 to 5/16 of inch on the crankshaft.

I havent had one leak or comeback yet. Works great. Hope this helps.

With the crank seal housing removed a couple of flat screwdrivers or snapon prybars will get the sleeve moving and slighly off the crank. Then a pair of vice grips will pull it the rest of the way off. Just make sure not gouge the crank at all.
