well, Daniel Flynn oil leak, yes you can. but check the oil pan 1st, because they tend to rust out on those...

if you need to remove only the seal then remove the pulley and balancer then use 2 machine screw's dont screw them in to far just enough to grip the seal
screws into the seal 180 deg from one another and use the screw's to pry out seal this will save haveing to do the timing cover and gasket
