Default Duramax Rear Main Oil Seal Installer Tool

Hi there, I'm rebuilding my "new" LML from salvage and put a new flywheel housing plate on, and am changing the rear main crank seal while I'm in there. I am coming up short finding the installer tool locally, does anyone have a tool that I could rent out?

If not, any suggestions?

Thanks alot!

You can tap on in gently if your careful with a punch or make a tool but no doubt a installer is faster, easier , and takes risk out of messing the seal up.

Front main, Iíd probably try that but rear main, I wouldnít. Itís a lot of work to fix it if it donít seal cause it wasnít installed right.

My friend did his rear main on his Cummins 3 times after building his trans. The right tool for the job takes any suspicion out
Iím a tool guy, I got a couple different tools for a 6.6 just in the event someone needs em. Everything but a repair manual...thatís why Iím here jk
