Hi Sam.

	  Is it for your Corsa (MT) or possibly your AT Monza? I'll
address MT since that's all I know.  If it's the coupler you're having
trouble removing, on the tranny end, Chevy used a pin, not a nut.  A lot
of people use a bolt and, IMHO, it introduces play as the pin is a more
precise fit.  I'd drive that out and order the pin.  If the problem is
on the shifter shaft end, I have been able to get the seal on without
yanking the coupler off.  It's a matter of driving the two respective
shafts in to make space.     
	That being done, the selector shaft seals (at least the ones I
have bought from Clark's) are difficult to seat.  They must be driven on
straight or the steel will deform (I use an appropriately sized socket
1/2", slid on backwards and drive with a rawhide hammer.)  If my feeble
mind is registering correctly, somebody on this forum had mentioned a
National Seal that fits the shaft more snugly...  Are you there?

Good Luck.

Hi Everyone,
I need to replace my selector shifter seal.  I can't remove the yoke at
end of the shaft because the the nut will not loosen  and I afraid of
breaking the nut off.  I have tied the socket over the shaft way but I
seam to get a flat mating because the the yoke will not move to side far
enough so I can tap it with a hammer.  I have destroyed two seals so far
it going in uneven.  Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance
