T150 main shaft seal?

My t150 leaks the oil in to my dana 20 case. I have been researching this for a while and came to the conclusion that the rear main shaft seal must be lekaing, because I have all the holes in the back of the trans plugged. What my question is, can you replace the main shaft seal with out pulling the trans apart, ie: pulling the main shaft? Can you pull the bull gear off the shaft and install the seal that way or does the trans need to be pulled and gutted? I have searched here and other forums with no clear answer.

You might and I say might be able to do it without pulling the mainshaft but thats a alot of torque on the nut and when you tighten it back down it is torqued to 150ft lbs. You will have to pull the transfer case of coruse.

Make sure the seal is put back on this way.
