I picked up another seal and it looks very simular to a front seal, but smaller. It was $5 for it, the mechanic there gave me a remover that threads in the old seal,then a bolt thru the top of it to tighten against the head of the shaft, pulling it out.
The installer looks like a socket, goes over the shaft and then you smack it with a hammer to install the seal.
Only none of the tools will fit, especially the one you have to use a hammer with. I came to the conclusion that these tools only work if the tranny is out.
That cover pan is a good idea, but I still dont think it will leave me enough room still for the hammer tool. Hmmmmm
