Never needed to do anything on a small Honda engine - except oil and gas. My pressure washer is leaking oil from the crank (bought the unit used - don't know how many hrs on it - they run for ever). How do I replace the oil seal? Do I use needle nose pliers to pull it out from side to side? or a hook type device to pull on it from side to side?

Hook device/screwdriver or anything to pop one side out, But you want to be careful not to nick the crankshaft where the seal rides.
