The seal puller from Northern Tool, a Grip brand name, turned out to be a POS, that bent the hook easily when using it the first time. Most be China cheap.
I ended up just bending the steel part of the seal with a large screw driver, as I have done on the past with a Getrag, and popping it out.
I'm going to bring the POS Grip brand seal puller back to Northern for a refund. No customer satisfaction with that unit.
I have done that in the past to just about any type of seal that has the steel around it, if there is enough room just clamp a small pair of vise grips on the outer ring, once you get it pried out a little and use the vise grip as a lever, works every time.
Technology is great when it works,
and one big pain in the ass when it doesn't
Detroit iron rules all the rest are just toys.
