My 801 has a Lycoming O-360 that needs a new oil seal installed behind the prop.  It looks like I would need to completely disassemble it to install.  It has 1500 hours since overhaul and 3700 hours TT.  Anyhow, can someone recommend a mechanic/rebuilder in Ohio?  I don't need it certified.

It gets stretched over the crank flange... Wish I could help but ak is to far

Thanks David.  I had no idea the seal could be stretched over the flange.  I googled it and found a few tutorials.  It was easy once I knew how to do it.  Thanks again!

Mosr any A&P would be able to do that work. If you don't know any visit the local airport or FBO they should be able to point you in the right direction. What part of Ohio are you located?
