@PSk, that just sounds like a bit of 'petroleum perspiration' to me! It helps prevent corrosion of the exhaust system.

@Norseman50, that's the special tool the shop manual illustrates. I like the seal installation tool. I'm a practitioner of also freezing the seals to aid installation. We have to do that at work sometimes...cold-soak titanium parts in dry ice before installing them.

I'm going to try the impact wrench approach tonight. Hopefully it won't beat the hell out of the pinion nut, as it did my crankshaft nut. Centerline doesn't carry replacement pinion nuts, so I'd have to order one from Classic Alfa.
