I'm in the process of a timing belt change/complete front oil seal replacement procedure on my 88 XT. I am taking my swet time with it because I have college finals coming up and work kills me. I've gotten the timing belts off and I'm disassembling the oil pump to reseal it. The cam seals are cake, I LOVE how I can just remove the retainer out of the car.

However, the crank seal looks to be much more difficult, simply because I don't know how I'm going to get the crank sprockets off. On my Legacy it was no big deal because that one will come off with a steering wheel puller. I don't see these tiny things coming off with that.

How have the rest of you removed yours? I hope I dont have to resort prying it off with a screwdriver :-\

Mine came off with a minumum of effort. They aren't press-fitted or anything, they just slide on with a keyway.

a gentle pry will get it off...if you are worried about damaging stuff, put a rag over the prying device you may use...you should have no trouble with it...
