Once the collar is out, the seal can be fairly easily hooked out with a screwdriver or other implement.

I'll try it later today. I searched all over the forum, but couldn;t find an earlier post i'd seen with pics. Never thought about taking the colar off first. I couldn;t find anywhere in either the service manual or teh Clymer's manual where they addressed the removal of that seal. Talk about aggrevating!!!

another way to pull the seal after collar removal - 2 screws opposite each other, grab with 2 pliers and perform on good yank simultaneously it'll pop right out.
use a rubber mallet to gently tap the new seal in.
while verything is out, check for side to side play on the countershaft, if ANY exists, it might be time to do bearings before you get into a grenade situation.

I've replaced the seal before, but never the o-ring. I'll definitely check and replce if necessary. Shaft itself is nice and solid. Thanks for the tip, I din;t realize the collar could be removed first.

replaced the o-ring AND the seal.... STILL leaking.
cleaned the surfaces
lubed the oring and seal
seated the seal flush with cases
tighten the sprocket to specs
thanks in advance
