Any seal could normally be taken out by drilling the face of it (I mean at least 2 screws and more), screw some self tapping and grabbing them with vise grip and pull them out ,the seal should come out with this,Ray :)

The seal is usually removed by merely prying it out, when the gear is in hand.
Removal while the gear is installed, however, requires a fine pointed punch like an icepick, as it it too small for screws.

Installation while assembled is a bit trickier.
A well-lubed seal must be slipped over the shaft, and pressed in with a driver that fits quite sweetly to the shaft.

They are not easy to get in without puckering.
