The oil seal will be totally destroyed. You must re-adjust the tool to pull the bearing completely
off of the axle. Remember to fit a rubber oil seal instead of a felt seal.
Make sure it is the correct way round and fit it before the bearing.

Modified puller tool.  This tool has a modified flat bar on the pulling end. The above tool uses the central thrust bolt to pull the bearing off, this variation used the nuts on the long bolts instead. It is all positioned centrally by the pin on the thrust pad.


The oil seal pulls onto the bearing and is destroyed in the process of removing it. The puller plate has 2 knife edges to easily put the blade behind the oil seal. There's no room to push it into position, so it must be hammered down to the oil seal landing. Position the thrust pad and the centralising pin.


Attach the puller bar and nuts and washers.  The oil seal landing is clearly visible.


The bearing is dislodged. Re-adjust and re-position the puller unit to pull the bearing off the outer landing. You only use the nuts to pull the bearing off.
