Hi
You need to remove the clutch housing and grab the shaft from behind !

1st drain the coolant, remove the rear brake pedal, kick start and disconnect the power-valve arm - don't snap the arm when removing it ,put something in there to lock it to stop it moving !
Remove the clutch casing, on the kick start shaft there is a small shim it often sticks to the clutch casing when you take it off

N.B.
The mechanical seal is just behind the impeller which is held on the shaft by a LEFT-HANDED thread

Ride Safe
