Agree Bill. The Teflon seal may not have the same profile or contact patch.
I think everybody has behaved rather well. I try, or maybe should say I don't have to try. I give it my best shot and if somebody shows me the errors of my reasoning then I learn something. I didn't see any name calling. I think in the end we all do a better job because we have looked at the problem from another's stand point. Use a socket or a block of wood or tool made from unobtainium, The next time any of us puts a rear oil seal in we will look at it with new eyes. I think that is truly priceless.
Did anybody else think Plaka's Super Glue idea was really funny? I'm afraid he may not of been joking though.
