    My tranny has been pushing tranny fluid into my t-case(th350-np205) so I pulled the t-case to replace the seals, on both sides of the adapter. One seal was busted so I think i found my problem, but my real problem is getting the new seals into the adapter w/out ruining them. Anyone who has replaced these seals got a good trick? I replaced my seals before but not the way these are seated. The thin lip of the seal is all I have to drive the seal down. So far ive tried using a block of wood, didn't work, the old seal on top to drive it down, didn't work, and ive used a metal punch lightly to tap it down but it is bending the lip. It's at a point now where there is no part of the seal i can hit to drive it down without ruining it. PLEASE if you have done this let me know what you did. Thanks
