Thanks for all the advice.
It is just the manual that says to use this tool to center the timing case cover when bolting it back on the block ,then use another attachment to push the seal in,I must be getting old ,or reading the manual too close,cause I never worried about this stuff when doing Harleys many moons ago(before the Yuppie takeover)
Sometimes special tools just make things go so much smoother they are worth the expence.and I hate having to stop working on something to go looking for a tool.I would rather be prepared in advance.
Couldn't I just put the seal in the case ,put the case on the shaft ,It should self center itself ? then bolt it down to the block ??
