How to re-install PTO seal?
I am pulling my motor and am at the point of removing the drive shaft but it seems to be seized to the PTO seal. Any tips on how to get this thing loose without ripping it out? Also for those who have removed the shaft, do you have to use the PTO seal support tool?

Try to get someone to pull on the shaft, while tapping
On the PTO bearing race. Probably just stuck on there. Use plenty of PB Blaster too.

Move it around in a circular motion GENTLY and pull as you are doing it. Be careful to not damage the seal at the end of the shaft. It worked for me yesterday.

Ok that was easy, one small tap. Now my question is, does anyone use the PTO seal support tool to put the shaft back in? If not what's your method? Thanks!
