Hey, I'm having a bit of trouble installing the rear main seal on my EL V8. Tried gently tapping it evenly on both sides with a hammer, and the seal just breaks apart. I've put a bit of grease on the seal too. I've successfully done it this way on a 6 cylinder and it's worked fine. What am I doing wrong? I don't want to invest in the special tool that it says to use in the max ellery's if I can get away without it.

Cheers, Gab

It should just tap in. unless there are parts of the old seal in there getting in the way.

Mine slid in with even pressure on 4 points and a thin film of oil. I used my hands.
