Whats involved in replacing the rear main seal?

I have a small oil leak that seems to be coming from behind the oil pan, almost from the fly wheel cover. It's not ATF, its dirty oil, so what all is involved in replacing it? Everything is in the car, so would the transmission have to be removed? if so, i might as well get a better torque converter.

Watcha think?

Brandon, it depends on if you have a 1 piece seal (newer 350) or a 2 piece seal like your
original engine came with....newer 1 piece will require removeing trans. 2 piece seal will require removeing your oil pan and the rear main bearing cap...
