Volvo Penta 290 o/d prop seals

My propeller shaft seal is leaking and the repair manuals I have do not address this specific issue but rather they show how to overhaul the lower gear housing. Is it possible to remove the aluminum "propeller gear housing" with a wheel puller - w/o removing the shaft and bearings in the housing - and replace the seals?

should be able to...

You should be able to remove the two screws that hold the seal to the lower unit. Then you can removethe piece and have the TWO seals away from the shaft. Usually there is fishing string in the shaft and lower unit so be sure to clean it out good. Replace both seals, making sure to put the seal springs with the same orientation of the ones that came out. Good luck.
