Before you start, mark the nut and the housing with white paint or some such so that you can count the number of turns to remove the nut, and put it back in exactly the same position. This way you should get away with not disturbing the crush washer behind. My nut took 11 full turns to come off.
I had to resort to a 2-leg puller to get the flange off the shaft and with the prop still in the car I wonder if you will have enough space for that. Once off I could see why the seal leaked. The surface of the flange shaft that the seal rubs on is pitted with corrosion. Its amazing the oil didn't pour out, not just drip. I have ordered a Speedi Sleeve to repair the surface and am waiting for that and the new seal to arrive.
