New crate motor leaking get rear main seal

Leaks more than the motor I took out. Day one.
Less than 200 miles. I'm happy with everything but the leak. 290hp, manifolds, holly 670, flowmasters.
Shop that installed said they couldn't do right away.
(Took 6 weeks to swap simple 350, but got the friend price ) what's the odds a Chevrolet dealer would fix this? Thanks in advance. Ifor I do pay what is going rate? 1972 k5, 4x4, th350.

Wow - not sure how to respond to this. Will the shop not honor their work - even if you have to wait a bit or are you just moving on to a different shop?

I'm sure they can fix anything for $.

They will honor it, but I have reservations. I hate to wait, and theven owners dad has a few months to live, Imy the least of his worries. Would love to drop off in morning drive home in afternoon. I have a huge dealership by work, I may stop by and see what they say. ....... on a good note she runs great! ..... stay tuned

I would document the problem with the shop, get an estimate of the duration of the repair. You undoubtedly paid a decent amount for the engine, I would be polite about it but see what your options are with the original shop.
