    WH Caprice 3.8 V6 Crank Groove - Rear Main

    Hi all, Iv got a rear main leak, after taking the plate off the back of the motor I noticed a groove in my crank. Is this standard for a car with 140,000ks? Is this something that has to be rectified before installing the new plate and seal? Cheers Scott
