Question is, will the oil come gushing out or can I get the new one in without a big mess?

Like newday says do it after you grain oil but I don't imagine much would come out even if it was full of oil. As onr would assume the seal is above the oile level and if not it would be drained out by now.

Nope, no oil leak. Pick out the old one and slide on the new one. Protect the seal by covering the sharp end of the shaft with a turn of masking tape and oil the shaft before sliding the seal on. A piece of tubing slipped over the shaft that fits the seal is the easiest way to seat it.

None at present
