Crank Seal front

So I removed the centre bolt for the flywheel, about 175nm I think. Next I had to purchase a 4" puller and cut the arms in half. This allowed a smaller pull radius since the V6 flywheel is dinky, it didn't take much force to remove it. The old crank seal came out with the seal pick, a little stubborn but no drama. In with the new one and I must say it is important to use a press-kit and don't over insert the seal, keep an eye on it and leave it flush with the engine casing. The flywheel was next and I had to make a thin washer as the bolt was short when it came to pressing on. With that on I tightened it to about 150nm, I will check again in a week but that was enough for me that day. Took about 5 hours although I didn't have to drain the water coolant.
