#1 Drain the engine oil.
#2 Collapse the rear driveshaft towards the rear end by grapsing the forward u joint and pulling backwards.
#3 Use seal puller or needle nose plyers and flat head screw driver to work the seal out. Be care full not to scar the metal surface on the shaft
#4 Clean area where seal was and shaft coming from the motor
#5 Use some motor oil to lube the inside hole of the seal
#6 Install seal flush with the motor ( should be a tight fit)


Get good at this, as you will repeat this process many times over the life of your brute.

No the screw driver is the master! It was sharp and I would not advise using sharp tools with your eyes closed!

So you work it out from the center between the seal and the shaft? I still haven't got my seal yet dealer had to order, should be here tuesday or wednesday.
Are the tools modified in any way (seal puller or needle nose plyers and flat head screw)
How is each tool used to remove the seal? (I don't want to mess any thing up)

Thanks

tell me about it....
i been WAITING for ronAyers to ship mine...its been in the "order fulfillment" stage for a week now!
i just want to ride my quad!!!
and make sure its flush!!!!!
i made the mistake of tapping it in all the way...

you will destroy the old one..no way around it..



and if the drive shaft doesnt want to come out...just keep working it, i had to use PB blaster and spray the spring inside to get it to collapse all the way and take it out.

If you have a seal puller, it should look like an icepick with a curve on the end. But I just use a small flat head screw driver and workit around the outer edges ( stick it in between the seal and the outer edge. Then just kinda pry back until the seal starts to slide out. Keep working around the outside edges until you can grab it with some plyers and pull it out. You will most likely destroy the old one. No modified tools though.

Hey Guys
Is it normal to be able to push the rear seal in with your hands, It was a hard push but got it in flush by hand.

i lightly tapped mine flush with a hammer untill the hammer bottomed out on the metal...

LEAK FREE NOW!


i followed someone else's advice and used a self tapping screw (short one) and pulled it out with vise grips...worked great!

I got mine out fine but when I went to put it in i started it in the hole and for fun before I got the hammer out I pushed it in as far as I could by hand which was all the way flush (It was a pretty good push), so are you saying yours went in easy when you tapped it in lightly.
