    I took the drum off today and I need to replace that rubber seal on the inside of the drum. What's the best way to get that seal off so I can put a new one on? Thanks.

    You can use either a seal puller or just pry it out with a large screwdriver. Just be careful that you don't gouge the hub area where the seal is seated. I lay a small piece of wood over the new seal so that I can tap it into place without bending it. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    I've done those same ones several times, and Harry is right on.

    If it continues to leak after the new seal(s), then you may need to install a speedi sleeve to give the seal a clean surface to ride on.

    Once you have the drum off, inspect the spindle closely for a groove right where the seal rides. If you have this groove, you will need to do the speedi sleeve to fix the leak.

    Thomas.
