I was removing the bearing collar by dremeling a notch in the collar and using a chisel to tap it off when I slipped and scuffed the taper,

as you can see where I've circled the scuff - its quite near the flywheel side seal, its not a deep mark but you can pick it up if you run your fingers over it, is it knackered and would damage the seal or could I smooth it down and use it? thanks Paul

We used to use repair sleeves with success.

The dark line running round the area shows where the seal runs. Smooth any roughness (to prevent inner seal damage on assembly) and carry on.
