Refresh my memory. Didn't the 18 hp fasttwin have the split gear case?

My old chrysler had a seal in the bearing cage that I worked on for 4 hours before I could finally get it out. I was sure the carrier was built with the seal in it. A combination pliers was the perfect tool. When I got it out I used a deep socket and pounded in the new one instead of using an arbor press. Yours might be different. Hope this helps.

I just did this to two outboards last year and have one waiting to be done. I'm having a hard time picturing the seal. Yes its pressed in, a coat hanger with a small hook should be able to grab the seal and work it out. Post a picture if you can or send it to me.
