if you look into the costs of getting them rechromed you might find it much the same as buying a new pair of stainless seal holders, and you'll need to tell the chromers not to plate the threads or you'll never get it back on.

From memory there is a large circlip there...maybe you could treat yourself to a workshop manual/parts book too?

Hi Rex I do have a manual (PDF ) from a kind gent on here but it is vague on how to remove seals just giving an exploded diagram of components I also have the Haynes manual "a little more vague"

received new S/S oil seal holders & new seals,  just popped the old retaining washers out of old shrouds and all is good

thanks for all input       hope the crank sludge trap is this straight forward  "watch this space"

you will need a good impact driver for the sludge trap plug, and remove any punch marks round the edge.
then you have to get the tube out, have fun.
