1) Take a small piece of hardwood and plane it down to the correct thickness (23/32"), or as close as you can using a caliper to measure the board.
2) Then take a new seal and trace an outline of it on the board. Cut the outline out of the board on the inside of the line, so it's a bit smaller in diameter than the seal.
3)Cut out another circle, larger than the seal and stack it on the first circle you cut out. This will create a "lip" so that the seal isn't driven in too far. Drill a hole through both and bolt them together.
4) Now you have a driver that is the correct size as to equalize the contact points, and thickness so that the seal is set to the proper place.
I've made a few like this and they work great!
The handle of a seal driver set will not fit in the space and be able to get anything in their to drive it with, the oil filter housing is in the way. Also they will not work if the governor is still installed.Bill V in Md wrote:Did you use a seal driver on your first attempt? If not, you can purchase a set of these at Harbor Freight, and they are not too expensive.........
