    Perfect thats the gasket I have. Any tips on how to press the seal in as I don't have the overly expensive special tool

    Any suggestions on what to use as the flywheel timing pin? Or do I need to buy the special tool?

    Fitted the rear seal, went in a bit wonky but straightened up in the end. I think you're meant to fit it with the plastic in and then take it out? Didn't do that. Lip of the seal caught a little bit when the housing first went on but just took it off and straightened it up and went on fine. With my OCD now a bit worried I've balls'd it up. Seal looked completely fine when it went on.
