Postby ddwilson » Wed Sep 12, 2018 12:36 pm

Any suggestions how to remove an upper crankshaft seal that a previous owner put in upside down. Leaks real bad rest of the motor is pretty decent have all the parts to fix it if i can get it out.

can you put a hole in it and put a screw in the hole to pull it out ????
Or try to bend the out side in to collapse it then pull it out.

Was able to roll bend the edge down in a few places and get them with a sharp awl and working back and forth worked it out. Put new seal in seems to hold pressure ok without bubbling so putting top end back together. Think i will go ahead and do lower seal and bearings while i have it on the stand. Compression is about dead even at 120. Previous owner said that his dad said he thought the reeds were gone and it would not start. It was the seal reeds seem to be fine.

Dave,
Was afraid to do my normal punching a hole with the seal upside down and against the bearing. No clue why anyone would have put it in that.way
