Take a look in the tech archive., you'll find a title "Hub replacement,by Les Henson" scroll down the page and you'll see how the seal is fitted.

to remove the seal, like you asked, strip the hub down to the point where you remove the hub, then pull the seal out with a screwdriver/pliers etc. i find a large pair of pipe grips used as a lever inside the seal just "hoiks" it out nicely.

Ahh.... the one actually inside the stub?

You have to strip the whole assembly down as per Mr hensons description, then undo the 6 bolts that hold the stub axle in place.

once you've got it off (you may need to persuade it with a soft face mallet to come away from the axle) you'll see a bronze bush, this needs to be removed, either by levering, or banging a long drift down the length of the stub tube (from the "outside" towards the inside) to knock it out.

then change the seal and tap the bush back in place.

here's an exploded view of the stub:

Thanks for replying so soon. Are you saying knock the seal & needle bearing & bronze bush all out in a one ha cos the bearing needs to come out before the seal & bronze bush before the bearing. sorry if i'm being a pain. Would this seal cause oil to seep forward into the hub bearings & out onto the wheel itself or cauld it be that the hub oil seal my only need replacing.
