impeller mechanical seal question.

So I'm to the point now where I'm installing the mechanical seal on the impeller shaft. I don't and atm cant afford a bearing driver, so the other route is the 28mm socket, which i do not have. Will a standard short well socket work for this or am i correct in assuming that i need to try and find the magical deep well 28mm socket that no store around me seems to have?

Might check to see if the auto parts store has a bearing driver set in the loan-a-tool. Costs nothing, but you leave a refundable payment on the tool. If you decide to keep the tool, you just don't take it back, you paid for it already.

Deep well probably needed due to the shaft length sticking out.

Might look for a black iron pipe nipple the right size, such as Lowe's/Home Depot. Has to fit just right so it doesn't distort the seal.

Harbor Freight has a deep 28mm in a set for $25. They do come in handy for CV axles.

28mm = 1.10 inch, so a 1" pipe nipple might do it.

Or see how a 1" deepwell socket lines up on it.

i threw caution to the wind and went and grabbed my 27mm socket and got the seal in perfectly. Just let her run for a few minutes after getting everything back together and that hellish squeal is now GONE! so happy.... so happy... 2 years without riding.... time to ride!!!

I used a standard 27 mm on mine too, couple taps with a dead blow hammer and in she went. No more drips under the bike!
