All I’ve done to mine is change the anodes and the oil, before I started I watched a couple of videos on YouTube to get an idea of what to do and Im sure I saw some there on a full strip down - worth a quick search there to refresh your memory.

SD120 I assume?

The parts diagrams are usually a pretty good indication of the way in which parts are fitted.

Looks like both come out together forwards

The workshop manual may help too

It's a 120E , I know one come out the back of the housing but can't remember which way the other one comes out , trying to help someone out .


The two seals, the shim(s) and the bearing outer race all press out of the back of the housing together, See page 65 of the manual or the picture below

Thanks for the link to the workshop manual..

I had not seen the photo of the official tools before..

The 1/2" socket and three pieces of wood shown in my OneDrive photos didn't actually look much different. :)

I hadn't realised I had taken so many photos.. I wonder if I took similar photos when doing the larger diaphragm seal.. If not then I'll do so next time..

To the OP... Enjoy the task... Just take it slow and don't rush..
