    Pull it all apart and fit a new quality seal, lubricate the lip of the seal with vasolene, this will keep it lubricated apon start up and during its break in period.

    Good eye! I can't believe it has not seized already.

    I'd be getting all the case seals and going the full engine pull split the case route if it was easy girls would do it

    first get yourself a manuel.. it will clear alot up and give you your specs and most if not all the procedures and tools to use... that said, pull the cover at the flywheel and get yourself a flywheel lock.( i modifyed a vw lock for my own home brew tool... .. you could do as some do.( i wouldnt) take off the head drop in a wood block or rope and rebolt loosley .. the crank will turn till it butts up against the head.. there is a tool you can buy to remove the coupler or you may be able to rent one from a dealer ... you could lock the shaft as above and heat the coupler with an propane torch to soften the lock tight, and with a good 3 ft. steel bar wedged it between pairs of opposite ears, it should come off fairly easy with heat..(tape the bar up with duct tape and it wont mar the coupler too badly..) it doesnt have to be to hot just a few hundred degrees to help it expand...
