Pickin' Seals out of a hobbit...

Anybody ever use picks to remove seals.

What pick ends work the best.

Don't wanna split case, just a stocker.

Any methods, one handed, two handed...heat...

Nice, i'll try 3 screws.

Re: Pickin' Seals out of a hobbit...

I would use one of these given the size of the seals. Drill a small pilot hole, and thread this in ever so slightly, Phillips would be recommended.

and you will only need one.

So do you need 2 15x25.5x7 seals?

I have to do my crank seals because one is leaking. I checked with some propane on the stator side yesterday so this is fresh in my mind.

At idle I can put propane right into the air filter and the moped bogs. When I took the cover off the flywheel and shot the propane on top of the flywheel, nothing happened. Then I revved the motor and the motor would just about kill as the rev's dropped back down to idle. It would not want to die if I wasn't holding the propane nozzle right there. I think it is true that these old seals can leak - Not at idle, but during load. DOH I just noticed I forgot to check the vario side.

I have to make a clutch puller to do the vario.

Ordering them now! Thank you Johnny

Re: Pickin' Seals out of a hobbit...

Got my seals, now I don't have a puller. Found a 24x3.0 thread pitch nut, but that didn't have enough grab to pull off the clutch...

GrrRR Need a 1.5 thread pitch!! I may have to order a puller now, jokes on me today.
