Special tool to replace output shaft seals?

Hey guys - the manual says I need a special tool to refit the t-case output shaft seals. What does this thing look like and what does it do? Do I need one? Is there a generic equivalent (like something available at Napa)? I need to do this job and want to not f it up.

I borrowed one from the local dealer. It's just a stepped ring that (a) insures "square" placement of the seal and (b) provides the appropriate, what 4mm, recess into the case.

It's been last summer since I did this, so don't hold me to the 4mm number - that sounds like the hub seal number now that I think of it.

Hey jim, I just posted a question and then saw your post. You dont happen to know if the seal is the same part as a pinion seal? Also you can use a rift and work the seal in evenly just as well. be sure to pre oil it. Also what were you doing to TC? My TC started leaking today after a great day on the trail . I have a extra pinion seal but the steelership just closed and am sol if they are different. Thanks JP

Jim can you post the part number of the seal yopu have? Thanks JP

I replaced my rear output seal a while ago without problem and I did not have any tool, come to think of it so did Jimmy. The trick is getting the old seal out! I used a 1/4" (or so) Allen key sticking the short end under the seal and using the long end as leverage to pry it out, worked like a charm!

It is just a regular shaft seal. No different than any other. If you are capable of installing a shaft seal without hurting yourself, this is no different.
