not hard at all.. just keep track of all your parts.. ive helped 2 times take motors out.. so if i can do it so can you! make sure to mark where everything goes so the clutches are straight when you put it back.

actually..i put in the seal last year without takeing the engine out. i was wondering if there was a better way of putting that seal in that using a socket. It worked all winter i may have just not seated it correctly.

Chances are if its leaking, its because of the way you installed the last one. Crank seals should last for many years if installed correctly. Do it right the first time and you won't have to worry about it again.

Most crank seals (at least later models) have a rib on the seal that slides into a matching groove on the crankcase. The case needs to be split to properly install theese seals.
