I didn't have a leak but I did replace the mechanical seal when restoring Hidaglo.
According to the service manual the procedure is fairly straightforward. Use the rear brake with the transmission in 1st gear to remove the *LEFT* handed impeller and shaft. Torque to shaft 18 ft-lbs and the impeller to 87 in-lbs when reassembling.
