    I need to replace my leaking push rod seal.
    Do I need to get a seal puller or is there another way to get it out.
    Thanks.

    Since you are replacing it, you should be able to pry it fairly easily with a shaft smaller than the clutch rod ?

    If you use the "Search Forums" button at the top of the page, you get tons of hits for clutch pushrod seal. There's even some video howto's in there.

    Booger hook (cotter pin puller) will get it.

    I keep a slightly bent over, old flat blade screwdriver (heat with propane torch to bend). I also ground the sharp corners off. Pops the seal out easy.

    Well that just sounds too easy. Real men never do things in a simple way if there is a more complicated and expensive option available! :laugh2:
