How to replace a steering gearbox seal.....

I have a leaking seal on the power steering gearbox on a '69 Coronet and was wondering if any can tell me how to pull it apart to replace the seal. Or, should I take it to a pro.

How to replace a steering gearbox

thems a pain , you get the arm off ?
i used small sheet metal screws and drilled into seal .
i put a 1/4 inch nut as to not go in to deep and hit bearing .
don't strip screw into seal , back off and remove nut .
then used a carpenters small pry bar ,the flat one with right angle short side for pulling nails , put screws back in leaving a gap ,thin pry it out .
four screws work good so as to walk it around and remove it even , this will keep from pulling screws out .

I would remove the pitman arm, dust seal, than take the snap ring out that retains the seal in. Than start up the engine and let the ps pump pressure blow the seal out, you may have to work the steering wheel back and forth some, just remember where center is at before you start. Than find a pipe or something the size of the seal to drive the new seal back in.
