THAT's what I'm talking about! Good job. Let us know how it works out. Oh, and by the way, if the 1st version doesn't work out, figure out WHY and correct your design instead of reaching for that hammer.

Nice homemade tool! I've always found that making sure the seal and seal area are absolutely clean makes for the best fit and a little bit of glass cleaner helps slide it in better.

If you sieeve it so that it is centered on the output shaft it should remain aligned as you press the seal in.

I always remember a lesson I learnt as a young man: A friend of mine was time served engineer with Rolls Royce
and he taught me a great deal about working on vehicles. The clutch spigot bearing died in my car and after removing
the gearbox I couldn't remove the bearing despite going at it with all kind of force with what was to hand. He went to the
bench and quietly made an expanding extractor with a bolt, nut and nail. It then took him less than a minute to extract the
bearing. In the same time I skinned my knuckles, swore a great deal and achieved nothing. I learn't an important lesson that day.
