Special tool required for sprocket shaft seal installation ?

#1

Post by TimmyV » Sun Sep 06, 2009 4:22 pm

Running a belt drive inside a tin primary on my '61 Pan, so naturally I want things inside the primary as dry as possible. Thinking about installing a new engine sprocket shaft seal & have a question. I see the 2 small holes in face of seal. Is there a special tool required to install this seal ? Surely one is not expected to take a punch to these holes to loosen/ tighten the seal.

Only had this ol' girl for a month or so & am still learning about these Pans.
TIA

I just made a tool for fitting this seal for mine. Two old rocker block dowels fitted in a length of 3/8 key steel did the job. Remember when your trying to remove the seal that it is a left hand thread.

Thanks Stuey. I like your idea, seems plenty easy enough.
