Dan the Gear Man® Tech Note 1:
Successfully installing a axle shaft seal without the correct Seal Installer is difficult. Makeshift methods don't usually get the job done due to the restricted area you need to work in, and the amount of compression needed to be applied to the seal. Due to the way we have to make the Tool, your Seal Installer and Seal MUST match. QT1138 will only work with original equipment design, NOK manufactured seals such as our QU40382. Seals manufactured by other seal manufacturers WILL NOT WORK WITH THIS INSTALLER!!!! We do not manufacture installers for this application to fit any other competitive seal designs such as National or NAK.
Dan the Gear Man® Tech Note 2:
QT1138 Installer is an Adjustable Depth Installer that allows you to offset the seal to a deeper depth to miss a groove or other damage on the axle shaft. However, YOU MUST be careful you do not set the seal TOO DEEP which may place the seal beyond the axle shaft seal surface!
Dan the Gear Man® Tech Note 3:
Once the axle is disassembled, the old seals can be easily removed with our TS4862 Seal Remover Tool Set or other suitable tool such as a length of sturdy pipe that will fit inside the axle tube. You will also need to clean the inside of the axle tube to remove dirt and crud that could get pushed into your new seal during reassembly.
