I plan on getting the stuff and with a older friend he says he can show me how it's done the first time. Thanks for the feedback guys
Good to hear. Not rocket science, just difficult given the location/position. Also, don't forget to protect the dripless unit from the splines on the shaft as you slide it over the shaft. From other posts that I read you do this by putting some (electrical) tape over the section of the shaft that has the splines. It appears that if you don't do this, you take the chance of damaging the seal.
