But good trick.
No I had the camshaft still in place. As I said I took the bonnet off the Minari, then I drained the water, removed the radiator, and removed the camshaft belt covers, next the cam belts, then the camshaft pulley, and finally the back plate on the side I was working.
I then had a camshaft “end” exposed and was I able to see the old leaking seal, as Woody said I also used a small electrician’s type screwdriver to lever it out. When the old seal was out I put a small amount of engine oil onto the inner face of the seal and pushed it into place along the camshaft, and then as I said earlier for the final 5mm to 10mm I used the 36mm, (I think that is the size), socket to gently and evenly tap the seal into place in its recess.
Next it was a reassembly of the back plate, pulley, belts and setting it all up for TDC and all of the rest to set up the timing.
