Is it possible for you to describe the right and wrong way to remove Scamp seals? I would think you could remove and inspect the seals without destroying them if one new the proper procedure
Thanks Steve D
Once the hub is removed and the outboard bearing is out of the way, you simply place the hub, with the inboard side down, on a solid surface with clearance under the seal. Get take a hardwood dowel or an old piece of hardwood broom handle (I keep a hickory hammer handle for this purpose).
Insert the dowel through the outboard side of the hub at an angle sufficient to catch the inner race on the inboard bearing. Sharply and adroitly strike the end of the dowel with a small hammer. The bearing will be ejected taking the seal with it, without harm to either part.
