                                            Box of tools to insert the front and rear crankshaft oil seals and also the front and rear camshaft oil seals.
The crankshaft oil seals are the same size at either end and are the same for all models of GS and GSA. Camshaft seals are of 2 different sizes at the front [larger one] and the rear [smaller one] The front crank seals are pushed in by the starter dog nut and a nut fastened to the tool on the flywheel end. The camshaft seals are centralised automatically by the tools and are knocked in with a copper or hide hammer. After the seal on the fuel pump side is into its depth, a sealing cup is pressed into the aluminium housing, to protect the eccentric cam from dirt ingress.
