Clutch rod seal replacement
« on: May 25, 2008, 01:53:00 pm »
Well I should have known better, but i tried to do the repair myself using this link:  Of course I knocked the seal into the engine. So I need help from the tech GURUS out there as to what do I do next, what do I need to pull apart to find this seal? I have both manul;as and will start looking through to see if there is any hope at this point.  Thanks    EDit to add: I got real lucky and bought a megnetic pickup tool at the local Sears Essentials. Opened the oil filler cap,extend the tool down behind the site glass. Slowly pull up and lady luck is on my side; I have the old seal. MAybe I should play the lottery tonight.

Well done Bob!!  Maybe you should be a surgeon... or a fisherman, with those steady hands and fishing ability.  Good resourcefulness... Glad it worked out for you.   I think one of the best feelings, is when you're expecting a huge hassle of a project, and then something works out, and it's incredibly easy.
