tranny seals

I believe this issue may have been posted a while back.

I'm installing new axles in my car. The first one went well. The
second one was going very well until I tried to remove the tranny
seal. The axle is actually in very good shape and the later style
leading me to believe that the previous owner had replaced it some
years back. My fear is that he may have used something like Lock Tite
when replacing the seal.

The first seal 'popped' out fairly easy. I reached up there with a
cotter pin removal hook, got behind it and gave a good yank. This
rotten bugger on the other hand won't budge.

Any suggestions?

I'd kinda like to do a road trip next week.

Use a heat gun to soften the seal or adhesive if it was used. I use a
seal puller which just fits in a certain position in relation to the
tunnel to remove these seals. Be careful not to mar / score the metal
the seal seats into. Patience required.

Good idea. I'll try that. Thank you. Have not been able to find a seal puller.

You can buy them just about anywhere for under $10. Attached
(hopefully) is similar to what I use. Cheap enough that if you need
to cut / shorten the handle its no big deal.

Thanks for the ideas and link. I found a puller today for $4. I think it will work great. May be a day or 2 before I can try it.

I modified the puller with some extensive grinding. When I got the puller to fit, the seal just popped out. Thanks everybody for your suggestions. Axle is installed. I should be swimming the next time the sun comes out.
