If I already started taking the old one out, should I still try to install another selector shaft seal on top of the old one?

"carefully picking the old seal out" doesn't seem to even be possible with the tranny in the car. I've done it out of the car standing on end at working height and it was simple. On my back with less room, access to 3/4's of the seal and poor light-- the seal gives a bigger fight.

I hear you and have sympathy pains in my neck. If the old seal hasn't improved its attitude after you take a coffee or beer break, I'd say drive it back in. That's assuming it insn't chewed up to the point where it will damage the shaft. When I did mine, I fabricated a tool from a piece of EMT, flaring one end to the needed diameter.
