Pressing in the seal isn't that hard. It's usually getting to the seal that's the huge PITA.

Hi Hulk,

How big of a PITA? I have the toyota 2f manuals & also a Haynes manual, but other than that I am a hand tool guy. The engine in out of the truck & will be on an engine stand on Sunday. Will the manuals be enough to walk me through it, or should I consider hiring that job out?

If you have the engine on an engine stand, now is the time to do it. The hard part is doing the rear seal while the engine is in the truck -- you have to yank the tranny backward to get to the seal. That's the PITA part.

Be careful to drive the new seal in straight. If it gets too crooked, you will end up with a new leaky rear seal. A good thing to do is take the seal to Home Depot and look for PVC to drive it in, so that it gets equal force to all areas of the seal.
