Fork seals

Hey guys trying to pop my fork seals out with air. They don't seem to be budging. Any tricks to help it along? I think I'm using plenty of air I'm hoping not to have to take them completely apart.

50 lbs. of air should pop them right out. I'll ask the obvious - did you remove the retainer ring?

Yep took the retaining ring out. I'm letting them sit for a while hopefully they pop out.

Did mine a couple weeks ago, took 90 psi and 30 to 45 seconds to pop. Put a rag just above seal, pump them and leave them alone untill they pop.
