replaced my oil seal today at the house. took a 2X4 6 inches and drilled a 2 1/8 inch hole thru. put primary cover over wood and tapped out the seal w/ a 3/8 inch cold chisel and a soft mallet, no hammers here. cleaned it up nice and pretty. took a 5/8 inch dia. all thread rod and bolted a craftsman 1 7/8X3/4 drive socket to it inside and out. flat washerson each side. put the inside of primary cover over the socket on the bearing boss, excellent fit. oiled new seal and placed over hole. took a 1-7/16 socket from same set and placed over oil seal. perfect fit. put washer and nut on rod and turned it in with an 8 inch adjustable wrench. no sweat. needed an extra set of hands but i made work ok. no press needed. will probably work for the bearing as well.
