I am trying to replace the seal from around the oil pump shaft. Any tricks anyone can provide for doing this? The problem I am encountering is that the replacement seems to be a hair bigger and I can't work it in. This problem exists with a Honda seal and a Federal seal. Thanks!

Do you
have the same problem?

Check the seal seated area for damage. It has a taper that tends to get damaged when prying the old seal off. A fine scraper should be able to help you get the taper back to position.
