Front Oil Seal and Hydraulic Questions

1. I need to replace the front oil seal on my '50 B. I understand that the front seal comes out the front of the engine cover and can be pulled with a small slide hammer. I don't have a small slide hammer, so can I punch 3 or 4 holes in the metal seal rim, screw in coarse thread metal screws, then lever out the seal by using a small pry bar on each screw head a little at a time?

2. My belt pulley seal is leaking, and the hydraulics leak down. Is there a complete rebuild kit available for the PTO/belt pulley/hydraulics system, or will I have to order each seal/o-ring/etc. separately?

Thanks for any advice.

Your method for removing the front seal sounds like it will work. Before you knock the new seal in make sure the cover is centered by sliding the seal over the crank and against, but not into the cover. Then eye the relationship of the seal and cover, it should be centered, if not the cover needs to be moved. There are no locating pins on the cover and there is a lot of room for it to move around. I would suggest that if it needs to be moved that you go ahaead and remove the oil pan and cover and install new gaskets. The first one of these I did I just knocked a new seal in and it leaked just as bad, then I found out about centering the cover and tried loosening it and moving it with out removal. Ended up doing the job 3 times to get all the leaks fixed.
