Just removed shift shaft seal and have a ?

I've been reading through the posts and found some good tips on how to remove the shift shaft seal. I used the "2 screws" method, which involved screwing 2 screws into the sss itself and then prying out. BTW, I have a 67 Camaro with a Th350.

Now my question... what is it supposed to look like behind the shift shaft seal? Should I be able to see space around the shaft or solid metal all the way around the shaft? I've read where sometimes there are 2 shift shaft seals in place and if that's the case, should I go ahead and remove the other before installing the new one?

I can email a digital pic to anyone interested in helping me out, but I currently cannot host a pic. Thx

There is a tool MADE to do this.

IMHO........if yours has 2 seals..........it has been worked on before.

1 is good..........

That tool would have been handy! I talked to a friend that is a mechanic, and he said the thing that you have to look out for with the "screw" method is gouging the metal around the seal.... which of course I did.

He said go ahead and drop the pan, remove the shaft and use emory cloth on it to smooth it. Then install the new seal before putting the shaft back in... making sure not to rip any of the seal when putting the shaft in.

thx for the advice
