My first time I was helped by an "expert mechanic" who knew Amels...NOT!
He had 2 or 3 seal pullers, all of which broke. After about 3 hours the prop was off and another 3 hours and the seals were out.
Before my next haulout I received very well-written procedure from Gary Silver whose Amel knowledge I very much respect. I have used his original instructions since. His instructions call for drilling a small hole in the seal, then screwing a metal screw into the hole and pulling on the metal screw.
So, I was initiated to seal pulling devices by probably the wrong person, who BTW, called himself an expert and charged $90 an hour for 7 hours for a job that takes me about 1-2 hours. It was a great education, but unfortunately I developed certain prejudices from it.
