R100 Gs trans seal

Hey Everyone. I'm trying to pull the old trans seal out and replace it because its making my clutch slip. It was pretty old and hard, I was able to get most of it out EXCEPT for the outer most piece closest to the case.there's not alot of room in there and i'm not sure how the hell it was going to fit in there anyhow. Any sugestions before I stab myself in the eye on purpose with an awl?

I am not really following you but don't F up the tranny case by gouging the seal boss as you get it out. In the last couple of years I have been running into a bunch of tranny input and rear main seal bosses that have been permanently F'ed up by some serious gouging! Not to mention a couple of sump gasket surfaces!

I am currently on a campaign to stop the ugly rumor that airheads are easy to work on. What they are is easy to F up!

I am guessing that you mean the input shaft seal, not the output side.

Clutch oil contamination, if thats what's happening, could just as easleaking leaking oil pump cover, or leaking rear main seal, not necessarily the tranny input shaft seal - you may well know all that already.

You need to heat the surrounding case to spit - sizziling hot to get the input shaft seal out. At least I do.

Heed supershafts warning about not gouging the sealing surface. I use a thin stiff hook to grab the lip of the seal and tug it out.

+1. Use a heat gun or a gas torch if your careful, it will pop right out
