I ran into a prob,instaling a timing cover seal while the cover was on the car.With the crank in the way,its a bitch to get the seal on square without jacking it up.The first seal went on no prob with the cover off the engine.I went in there to fix a oil leak at the timing cover.,I'll just check the timing chain while in in the area and throw on a new timng cover seal,and the chain if need be. @ 145 or so thousand,it was imaculate! no stretch. so I left it alone.but I went ahead and did all the seals and gaskets.I did not notice that my original timing cover had a crack in the area behind the HB.So I scoured the yards for a new timing cover.Found a not so bad one.But like a dumb ass,I installed the new cover without the new seal! now I have to figure out how to not f..k it up.The first attempt failed.bent it to shit.So I thought making a tool would prevent a drain on my wallet by not messin the other ones up. It helps to have the tool,I didnt have a big enough socket to do the job,and drawing in the seal with the crank bolt is the best way.I proper tool costs $25 and has to be special ordered,2 weeks delivery. I started with scrap I had laying around the garage, a dom square 3x4 tubing.

I then cut down to 7/8" a piece of steel tubing 1 1/2.

I then welded the three pices together to form the tool

I wound up trimmng the round tubing some...I then drilled a 3/4 hole for the crank bolt to pass through...It worked pretty good. drew the seal right in no prob.

Well thanks buddy! The tool does its job and it was free. It dont look as purdy as the $25 tool but does the same thing
