    Installing trans axle seals

    I am getting ready to put in my new engine and the last step on the transaxle is installing the new axle seals. how do you get these in without breaking or bending? i dont have a lathe to make the perfect tool to hammer them in with. i just damaged one trying to use PVC from the hardware store.

    A piece of pipe that fits, or a seal installer tool. You can usually rent the tool for the parts store for a reasonable amount.

    Fumble through the tail pipe reducers / joiners at the parts store and find a nice fit, weld a plate on the end and tada!

    This, but don't even need to weld a piece on the end. Just stick something on it. I also have a bearing remover/installer I use.
