    The front seal went on my kohler engine on my lazer. Are they easy to put on, do you have to pull the engine? I put the rear seal on last year that was pretty easy thanks rob.

    The flywheel must be removed to get to that seal.

    Just a word of caution; DO NOT use two pry bars under the flywheel and whack the top of the crankshaft to pop it loose. Doing so could add the cost of a new flywheel to your repair, The magnets could pop loose from the shock.

    USE a puller of some sort, A automotive steering wheel puller is a good choice.

    The serial no. 272 480 4547 m ch22s. So I could use a pulley puller on the flywheel ? And to put the seal in, use pvc pipe over the seal, then tap it in until flush?
