Need a little advice wd45

I tried putting the engine back in my wd45. I couldn't get it lined up with the shaft that goes in the clutch. I left it partially installed, come back later and the shaft seal is leaking oil. I removed the engine and the leak stopped? I am just wondering if I should replace the seal on the shaft or if it will be OK if I get the thing lined up OK. Probably just wishful thinking on my part?

I thought I saw someplace where they make plastic alignment tools. ( Maybe I dreamed it!!) But they were fairly cheap to buy. Anyone else heard of them? Also I think some are harder to line up as some years don't have a fly wheel hub bushing. At least my WD45 don't. Harold

Do you mean the crankshaft seal or the input shaft seal on the transmission? Input shaft- if the engine is out, easy to get to- couple bolts inside the clutch housing to remove retainer, seal should be right there. Some close-by shops may "rent" the alignment shaft if they know you well. Could make one on a lathe- turn shaft on one end to match the pilot bearing bore, rest of shaft would be clutch ID bore.

Thanks for the advice, yea it is the shaft on the tranny. I haven't dug into it far enough to see the work involved. Sounds like it should be pretty easy, relative to all I been through with this project.

I have aligned some clutches with a machinist rule and eyeballing, but a cutoff input shaft is ideal for alignment. Much easier now, and fits a multitude of AC tractors.

That is a yes, no or maybe thing. Is the seal new?? Can you make it leak by pushing or pulling on the shaft?? Me I would probably replace it unless it is new. As for lining up things did you do a clutch job and not get the clutch disk in like it should be and aligned like it HAS to be.
