How difficult is it to replace the front seal in a EA-81 engine? The engine is out of the car. Thanks, Carl

Very easy. Remove the crank pulley, pull the seal, push the new seal in and put the pulley back on.

Just be sure not to go to far. I learned the hard way twice trying to get that extra 32nd of an inch.
