Hi,

Can anyone either lend me a clutch oil seal and flywheel removal tool, or point me in the right direction to purchase some at a reasonable price...

I am in the Stoke/Crewe area

Cheers

Mark

Aparently this is the one to use, if you haven't got a proper one.

Minispares doe the oil seal putter inner, but don't do the remover.

+1 for the Guess-Works flywheel puller and there's a rental option there too but worth buying if you're going to do this a few times.
A bearing puller would enable you to extract the primary gear/seal but it depends if you have enough clearance (if you're doing it in the car that is).

Engine is out of the car, and the flywheel has been off recently so should not be to difficult to get off again. Engine has only run for a short time (about an hour in total) but I am getting a bit of leakage around the seal. I am glad I ran the engine first for a while to check for any issues before dropping it in :D
To be honest its not something I plan to do very often (if ever again!), so cheaper tools would probably suit me best.

Are these OK of occasional use?

One way to remove the seal you could use an old large flat screwdriver or some thing similar, bend the end 3or4mm at right angles. Put an exhaust clamp on the crankshaft, using some vice grips in front of the screwdriver handle, lever against the exhaust clamp to pull out the seal. 8-)

I've used that one a couple of times - it definitely felt like the bolts were stretching when I used it last...

If the flywheel is really stuck hard you'll want to put some heat on the flywheel center with a blowtorch, tighten the center bolt as much as you dare, and then hit it hard and square-on with a hammer to shock the flywheel off the taper.

Took me two attempts when pulling a 998 block to replace with 1380 last weekend... but it did the job.

Removing the primary gear seal is quite easy. I punch a small hole in the seal with a nail then screw a self tapper in. Then grab the screw with vice grips and heave it out.

Thanks Callum. The flywheel is now off. I will give you a ring and arrange to drop it back to you when you are around again..
Thanks Mikal. Old seal is now removed.

Now I just need to replace the seal without damaging the new one....

At worse case cut the top and bottom of a pop bottle and slice it length ways, you can slide it onto the primary and oil it and slide the seal down it and into place.

It's mega ghetto, but does protect the seal lip
