+2.7!! do it while its off your pretty much done the KDP. as for the gasket i had to take a 90 degree grinder to get off my stock gasket on. the seal should press into the timing cover and slide on with a little effort
There is a tool made by Lisle, name may not be correct, but it's availible at most parts houses. It's a seal remover, it will work on both the front and rear seals and also the pinion seal. You can also drill 2 holes in the metal portion of the seal then screw in some small screws and use a pry bar to pop the seal out. Have done it this way numeros times and not have to remove the cover.
