Im having some difficulty installing these cam seals.
First set I messed up using a metal tool with a blunt end and a hammer.
Second set I used a pvc pipe the perfect size and a mallet to get the seal in there but it still leaks a little.
What tool to you guys use to install these seals?
Is it a good ideal to put rtv on the outside of the seal(between the aluminum and the seal)?

trick is not to hammer it in too far/hard or you'll end up crushing the seal. lube it up and drive it in gently. i used a piece of pvc pipe/coupler. i wouldn't put any rtv on the outside; no need.
