I just got a notice that motion industries shipped the oil seal.
edit: I got a notice that the oil seal shipped and then three hours later it was on the doorstep! It was only $4.27 shipped! Not bad at all for an odd ball size oil seal that isn't available anywhere else commercially like fastenal, grainger, etc. I've always liked using motion-industries for work related items but now they have become a new go to for car parts.

Went pretty well. This was the first time I ever installed an engine with the transmission already in the car. Wasn't a big deal though, it mated pretty easily especially being an automatic. Still have to couple the flex plate to the torque converter but the engine is bolted to the bell housing and the mounts are bolted to the cross member.
Also prior to installing it, we rebuilt and installed the distributer. Ran in to one hick-up this weekend. A former owner pulled the steering column. I guess to replace the steering coupler. He didn't have the column pushed far enough into the steering box. The clamp was just hanging free on the shaft. We had to pull the steering column out to reset it. In the process, I found how this guy half asked everything when he did this the last time. Many missing/wrong screws & bolts, snapped off plastic for the column covers, etc. etc. It was a minor setback for the weekend but was annoying to find.
Well from here on out, it should be pretty easy. The only problem that I know of that I need to address is the lower bowl of the radiator needs some repair. Oh I did get the fuel pump installed on the tray but still need to flush the tank and reassemble everything. That may be next up being that it is the largest part now laying in my garage.
