    That answers my question. After a good cleaning there wasn't much left to hold the seal in place but it will hold enough to get it leveled and installed.
    Thanks

    Not to revive an old thread but this one just saved me a few hundred bucks by not buying a gold plated installer from CAT. Thank you Willie, and thanks to Nige for the good explanation of the duo cone concept. I used a glazing knife/wedge thing instead of screwdrivers though.
