What kind of seal puller/method do ya'll use to pull the cam and crank seals? Pictures and links would be appreciated. :) I've never pulled a seal before; I have a Lisle seal puller, but it seems like it's kind of big for this job (maybe more suitable for wheel bearing seals er somethin). :headbang: -Louis

very small flat head screwdriver. tap it into the seal or between the seal and housing. be sure not to scratch the metal.

another way is to drill a tiny hole in the face of the seal and use a self tapping sheet metal screw. screw the screw into the hole and use a hammer or pliars to pull. don't get anything near the machined sealing surfaces. don't want to scratch those.

It's the ultimate bent screwdriver.
