Don't have a Fork Seal Driver?

Use painters tape! i have seen a few alternative methods on the interwebs to seating fork seals. I tried using the old seal but had a difficult time pressing everything in evenly with my fingers. so I grabbed a roll of painters tape and wrapped around 3/8th of an inch. doesent need to be pretty, then use the tube and tape as a slide hammer. worked amazing!

That's a pretty cool trick! I've got a 2" pvc coupler I cut in half that works pretty well. I like the tape though.
