[quote="CVPost-PJH"](quoted from post at 17:22:53 02/09/18) How do you put them back on the shaft without scratching the seal surface?

The only place I can see where the snap ring might scratch anything is at the two ends.

A little "rounding" at these two points should take care of that.

Prudent use of a good set of snap-ring pliers will help as well.

I've never experienced the problem.....seems most shafts are too hard to scratch easily.

Brian - can you recommend a good set of snap ring pliers? I've read through the archives, and it seems like they don't exist for this type of ring. Folks seem to use my "whatever works" method for removal, which includes small screwdrivers and knives. I'd like to open them up, slip them on, and release them in the groove without sliding and prying them into position.

I've got a couple different pairs. One set will handle the 5" rings on tractor axles.
