My '~'73 1020 is getting ready to hit the road to the next owner, and about the only thing I can say is they are getting a MUCH better tractor than the one I have fixed up. One of the last things I had to do was rebuild the fuel pump. While installing the pump, apparently I rolled the leading seal between the pump and the drive gear shaft.

In the repair manual during reassembly, it shows Roosa-Master tool 13369 as a seal installer and a Roosa-Master 13371 (JD256) seal compressor (page 91-20-3). I would like to seek the advise of others to see of there's an alternative, effective method to compress the seals, of if perhaps someone on the forum had these tools I could beg/borrow/rent and return.

It also mentions using a product called lubriplate on the seals. A google search shows that to be a brand of lubricants not a specific product. Which product would you think is the most suitable, or is there another off the shelf product that would work?

TIA!

Scroll down to about page 31, where you should see the 91-20-3 in the page header.

I remember the tool. Looks like a pair of tweezers but with a round end to compress the seal. I don't recall a work around for it but I'm sure that some of the guys on here will have one. I think the "lubriplate" they are referring to is white grease. It used to come in several size containers from tubes to large cans.

This isn't meant to be a smart a$$ remark, but I have sent people to the drug store for a tube of K-Y jelly to lubricate seals for assembly. It works well.
