My 289 rear main seal is leaking. I have read the posts on how to get the old seal out and a few of the posts mention the alignment pin, but I couldn't find a post explaining how to remove the alignment pin that was used to align the rope seal. Where is the pin located (TDC or on the side)? Do I have to remove the crank to remove the pin before installing the rubber seals? Just trying to get as much info as possible before I start the adventure.

Thanks,

It's in the cap (based on 351 knowledge) and you just need to knock it out from the outside of the cap with a drift punch or something equivalent. A hammer and a nail with its point ground flat will work...
