I think the recommendation is to use the seal from an IT175.
I can't remember the specifics but as you say MarkT will most likely confirm.

Exactly, lol.  I have not heard anything else so i guess i will proceed with the right side oil seal that the parts list calls for.  I have the slutch plates and springs out and i will measure those to ensure they are in spec.  I have not took the nit off to remove the clutch basket and or the clutch boss.  I do not have the special clutch tool, nor the size socket needed.  Someone said it might come off with just an impact tool.  I dont have that either but i can borrrow one.  I guess i need to buy a larger metric socket set, lol  I feel confident that after i get that new seal in, it will run much better.

I might have given you the wrong information there.
I did a quick search and found one of Mark's posts, the clutch side seal is the same on the IT175 and AT1C, it's the magneto side seal that gets upgraded by using the IT175 seal.
I think the seal you need is 93103-28011

Yes, clutch side is a good dual lip seal stock.  Ignition side is the one you want to use from 77-79 IT175.

My new right side oil seal should arrive any day now.  As a sanity check i need to ask you experts a few questions. Big Nuts are loose and will remove clutch basket only when im ready to put new seal in.  Then its right back together with everything.  My seal is completely pushed out so i will not have to use pick and or screw to remove. I will not have a visual gage of how far it seats in the recessed hole.  Leaving out eh little steps below is the plan.

1.  Will a deep socket work to seat the new seal?  Will i be able to tell when i have it firmly seated?
2.  I Will reinstall everything right back as is and prepare for clutch plates.  Can i tighten the big nuts back up with electric impact wrench after i manually tighten them by hand?  It is what i used to get them loose.  I do have a regular torque socket but no holding tool.
3.  Clutch - per previous reccomendation i do not plan on putting rubber cushions back in.  Fiber will be first to go back in and metal will be last plate put in closest to the pressure plate, Correct?  Its exactly how they came out.  Parts diagram is confusing and based upon other articles i read its wrong. 
4.After push rod and pressure plate and springs are reinstalled i plan to grease both sides of the gasket and reattach the right side cover alternating and not torquing anything all at once
5.  Fresh oil and reattach tach, oil lines, carb, etc etc. 

I know im leaving out many basic little things but other than putting it back the way i found it, am i missing anything major?  Is there anything else i need to be aware of? 
The clutch was stuck but it was freed up prior to taking clutch side off.  Lever was hard to pull but someone advised it was probably on the other side.  Another project later on i guess.  It pulls very easy without plates and pressure plate installed.  Taking apart and reinstalling may help that as well.

Thanks in Advance for any guidance
