turbo 350 leaking at shifter shaft

To change the seal at the shifter shaft on a turbo 350 do U have to pull the pan or is it done from outside?

There's a special tool that pulls it from the outside, or you can try screwing a pair of Drywall screws into it & use Visegrips to pull the seal out.

May find it cheaper elsewhere>> https://www.700r4l60e.com/store/prod...&cat=63&page=1

I take it the Trans is still in so.
The main thing is after you do get it out, is to make dang sure when you go back with it you have it very straight going in or it will just leak again. JMO
You might have to drop the trans down in the back to get enough clearance to go in straight IMHO Remove the drive-shaft and the crossmember and ease it down till you get the room needed to work, Just don't bust the distributor cap in the process. And after you got it in it wouldn't hurt to put some Indian Head schellac around the seal just for good measure. JMO

No, you don't have to pull the Pan. You do have to remove the outer linkage on the Shift Shaft. The tool removes & installs the seal, it slides over the Shaft, tap lightly with Hammer, then the threaded end screws into Seal & the Bolt pushes against the end of the Shaft and pulls the seal out. To install just tap sleeve with Hammer.
Works on TH200,2004R,250,350,400,700R4 Trans etc..

Do a search for KD-Tools, or KD2393.
Saw it @Sears for $27.

i would worry more about cutting the rubber lip seal as you slide it over the shift shaft. Some times a sharp edge is there

I agree that can and has caused problem's in the past for me anyway. That's why he needs to make sure he is going back in straight with the new seal, If not it will more then likely tear the seal on installation. JMO
