1957 R60. Is it possible to replace the shifter lever seal from the outside, without pulling the transmission out from the frame?

Regards,
Pat.

Yes, But

Yes, but you have to be very careful removing the old one to not mark up the shaft or aluminum bore. I'm sure it's been done successfully many times.

Should be relatively easy to

Should be relatively easy to do...seems like it on the /5-on bikes. Tilt the bike to the right...maybe rest the right jug on a milk crate or use a towel. Pull the hardware, pay attention to the depth of the existing seal and reinstall in reverse order.

So just performed this

So just performed this procedure, and can confirm it is possible. Very tight clearances to be able to remove the shifter locking pin / bolt. I was just able to drive it out without damaging the frame. Also had to get creative to pull the seal, is it sits tight. Performed this by modifying a puller with two wooden screws that screwed into the metal part of the seal. Success! No more leaks.
