5 As the seal is drawn into position, the inner edge of the seal may be damaged as it passes over the end of the shaft. To prevent this, as soon as the seal begins to locate in the housing remove the tools being used to fit the seal, and carefully work the inner edge of the seal over the end of the crankshaft, using a small screwdriver or similar blunt tool. The seal can then be pushed home using the tools described previously (see illustration).
