Yep. What he said. Like I stated in your original thread that this seal is a two piece integral seal. It came apart. You need to remove that from the spindle and as I mentioned, make sure to clean that surface as the new seal needs to slide on and seal to the spindle. It is not the rotating seal but it needs to be clean, free of rust and pitting.
Usually you can knock it apart the rest of the way using a hammer and I am thinking the inner part of the seal will remain stuck on the spindle... treat it like a wear sleeve - hit it with a hammer several times which will cause it to expand. Be sure to strike the metal band directly and not the spindle. You can exercise extra care by using a flat punch and hitting that with the hammer instead.Thank you but the problem is I can't remove it from the spindle... been trying for the past hour and no luck.
Any tips ?
Hey man thanks for your advice !
