That's how I removed a rope seal in a bronco recently.On 2006-04-05 04:19, Blue Fastback wrote:
You can even try treading a screw into the rear main and pulling it out with pliers. I forgot to mention that you need to remove the small pin thats in the rear cap that use to hold the rope seal in place. It is not needed for the new seal.
Also, put a dab of silicone in the hole where the pin used to be to prevent any oil leaks if you will be using a rubber/neoprene seal instead of a rope seal.
The one I did, it kept coming apart as I pulled on it so I turned the crank while pulling on the seal at the same time.
