Y'all said tst can do it cheaper but haven't said why.
It's been a few years since I've owned a Cub but if I remember correctly he modifies it so the new one piece seal can be installed as it seals better than the old crankshaft seals did.
He machines the retainer for a good press fit of a new seal with a larger OD than the original seal. The new seal and old seal are the same type.
