Shift Shaft Oil Leak

Recently replaced magneto, stator and left engine covers. DID NOT replace the shaft seal in cover. Can it be replaced without removing the engine again?

I believe it's actually supposed to be replaced with the engine in place. Just pry it out and slide the new one on.

Thanks for the response. I've seen that done on dirt bikes with engine in place, just didn't want to damage anything.
Thank you again.

OleDirty...hope your joking.Some on here might actually be looking for "serious" help...be a shame if they really removed the engine for no reason when that seal goes in just fine without removing the entire engine.

You might want to read his post again. It -was- serious help. If you screw up the shift shaft doing a seal replacement, the engine has to come out and be torn open to repair it.

That's the clutch linkage where the cable hooks to. The shifter shaft is on the bottom front left of the motor
