    Rotary Seal (Water Pump) Support While Pushing PTO Oil Pump Shaft into Position

    I had to change my oil pump shaft/gear because of failed supercharger clutch washers. New rotary seal pressed into place with no issues. I don't have the special tool to support the seal while the shaft is being pressed into the seal. What I know is that the seal is a mechanical seal and some of the spring needs to be retained in the seal. Maybe this can only be done with the tool, but I was wondering if anyone here ever found a way to do it without the tool.

    I trashed a seal yesterday trying to get it into place .............

    Yes; I found a way. I made my own tool in a lathe. I am not sure you can reliably get it into the right place without the tool. It might be possible to measure the offset of the seal, at it's limits of the spring and press until you start to get it into place, then press a few thousandsth, check, press, check.

    Yea, it just takes a LONG time to get the tools because no one stocks them. I was trying to get this build done a little quicker than that, but I want to do it right.
