Dirt inside trans output shaft area

I just got a used trans with 102k on it, 400 bucks. doing the swap mid june, but want to do the seals now to get them done with and have the trans ready to swap in.. couple questions

the tag on it says new filter, no oil.

inside the tailshaft if you look in the gap between the output seal and output shaft you can see a little bit of dirt in there, and theres some on the splines of the shaft too. what could this be from? is it going to be okay to use(the trans)?

Its probably from sitting around without a transfer case attached. Dirt and dust probably just got blown in there and stuck to the ATF. You probably dont need to worry too much about it. Maybe when you pop the seal off get a rag and try to wipe it up. You could rig up a shop vac hose and reduce it down to a small vacuum line and vac it out too.

okay thanks I figured that was how it got there , thanks

edit; can I remove this deal but putting a small crowbar(size of a screwdriver) in the gap and hooking the edge of the deal and pull it out evenly? I've only ever messed with lip seals like the t case output.

Yep a screwdriver or something like you mentioned should be able to pop it out, it may take a couple digs though. There are seal puller type tools if you wanted to buy one but that should work fine. Just be careful not to gouge or scrape the surface that the seal mounts too bad.
