    What does a guy use as a seal driver to put this in to the tcase (replacing front output shaft seal)? Biggest socket I got is 2" I thin kI need 2 1/4" I really dont want to buy just this 1 socket for this job. Any ideas on common household item - a soup can alsmost seems to have near right diam just too flimsy. Space is limited for a hammer/wood block tap-tap method especially at the top.

    Thanks,
    Johnny

    Just go to the hardware store and get a large fender washer in the size you need. It wouldn't be more than just a few bucks, if that, and use a drift or any type of shaft or bar to drive it.

    If he is talking about the seal on the t-case input, it would take the biggest fender washer ever made!

    I just used a brass drift and drove it in slowly and carefully.

    Just a suggestion. I have a big azz washer at work for installing seals in outdrives and works great. But it is a big one and I don't even know where I acquired it.
