I hate to admit this, because I like to think that I am pretty savvy when it comes to mechanical issues but here is my request.

I need someone to tell/show me how to (easily) install the rear main seal.
Every time I have done it, I struggle with it, and eventually get it in perfectly centered and proper, but it is ALWAYS the biggest pain in the A$$ for me on any short block I have touched so far.

I just cant bring myself to buy the SST from Subaru, but have thought about making one unless someone can demonstrate (with pictures) that they have an easier solution....

The way I do it now is by using an old rear main seal as a driver of sorts, and tap around the perimeter until I get it started. I have NEVER in my life had as much trouble with a press fit seal as I do when I do rear mains.
