Done it ;D

just spread the clamp on the top clamp over the seal head and tighten the bolt.
The bolt up the lower clamp at the other end of the forks and turn it with force.

Oil seal is crappy though as it sit's in the recess of the seal head thing
meaning it needs to be pulled out with a dental tool of small screwdriver
