Oil seal

Has anyone ever replaced the oil seal around the shifter spindle on the left engine cover? I figure I might as well replace it since I'm going back in there again, am unsure if it needs to be pressed in or what the procedure is for removal/installation.

Re: Oil seal

Yes, I have, and I recommend that anyone that has gone through the trouble of removing that cover also replace that seal. It comes out *fairly* easy with a screw driver. It just needs to be pressed in. I used a dowel and a rubber mallet to reseat my new one. The seal is like a $3.50 part from Ron Ayres, or about $7 or so from your local dealer.
