REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figures 1, 2 and 3
- Insert a 3 / 16 in. flat-bladed screwdriver between the dust lip and the metal case of the crankshaft seal. Angle the screwdriver through the dust lip against the metal case of the seal. Pry out the seal.
Do NOT let the screwdriver blade contact the crankshaft seal surface. Contact of the screwdriver blade against the crankshaft edge (chamfer) is permitted.
If the crankshaft edge (chamfer) has any burrs or scratches on the, you can clean it up with 400 grit sand paper to prevent seal damage during installation of the new seal.
No lubrication is necessary when installing the seal.
- Place special tool 6926-1, or equivalent on the crankshaft. This is a pilot tool with a magnetic base.
- Position the seal over the pilot tool. Make sure you can read the words THIS SIDE OUT on the seal. The pilot tool should stay on the crankshaft during installation of the seal. Make sure that the lip of the seal if facing towards the crankcase during installation.
If the seal is driven in the block past flush, this may cause an oil leak.
- Drive the seal into the block using special seal installation tools 6926-2 and handle C-4171 until the tool bottoms out against the block.
