Indy 500 Crank seal replacement

Looks like I have to replace the crank seal (@ mag end) on my 91 Indy 500. Having never done this before, I am looking for any advice, wisdom, suggestions...

I am assuming I should replace all crank seals while I am at it. Sound correct?

Get the right puller to pull your magneto off, and use lots of oil. Also use a large diameter socket or pipe (make sure no burrs on edge) to softly hammer it in once seated. I like to use a light film of grease on the lip of the seal to make sure its not dry on startup, otherwise it rips.

Off topic, but does your sled have the original decals on it still?

Does it look like the right side sled in my sig still?

If so, do you have access to a camera? I'd like some photos of the decals, as I want to attempt to reproduce them when I redo the cowl on my Trail RMK.

I'll try to shoot some pics this weekend. I have never posted pics to this forum. I'll try to figure it out or should I sent them via email ?
