    Tachometer Oil Seal Removal........help

    So I am a novice Honda Twin tinkerer............

    oil coming out of tach cable......googled tachometer oil seal, found it, bought from 4 into 1 for $8. Screw for tach came out easy......thinking this is going to be easy........it just slides right in with a socket about the same size as the hole.......easy enough until.......

    How do i get the old seal out? Its way back in there........is there any way to do it without having to take other parts off?

    If the 360 is similar to the 175/200 tacho drive, this may help.

    Grasp the tacho drive pinion with fine nosed pliers and pull the whole assembly straight out, including all the washers on the shaft. Fit the new seal with plenty of oil, then press the assembly back into place using a suitable size deep socket. See last post in this thread:

    I'm not sure as I've never replaced the tach seal on a 360, but the fiche appears to show a set ring that might go in a groove in the collar over the shaft that might prevent pulling the shaft to remove the seal

    Probably have to pull the top motor mount and then the top cover off the engine to do it
