I did my seal last weekend. It was fairly easy, though I guess it could be difficult to separate the parts. I used a vise to hold the pump, don't clamp it too hard. Instructions are attached. My seal was in bad shape, it even had a broken spring.

It's easy, the best would be using a workshop press, but the method in the procedure here works well. Make sure your pump hasn't got any snap/retaning rings on the shaft before you press the shaft out. Replace the bearings at the same time, they're cheap and easy to find.
