    Sounds like you are going about it correctly. Undo the nuts from the back and the can comes off the solid metal front part. Might be a bitch but I had no issues I remember from doing mine. Only slag I had was the press on pully bends completely before it comes off and needs to be renewed if you need to change the shaft seal. Early pumps had a key way style and come off easier.
    The dextron thing is bull. I rebuild gearboxes with all kinds of oil in them and the only thing that kills the seals is old age and heat. After 30 + years of operation expect any seal to quit.
