For output shaft seals the sheet metal screw is not your best option in this case. I think if you put a large screwdriver against the shaft, behind the seal, pressure on the handle, hammer on screwdriver shaft.
Or this tool. But it tends to cut through seals,depending on type of seal and tightness.
Then another slide hammer attachment.
All these methods work well, occasionally.
Start with plan A and work your way through the alphabet.
If you are doing a running repair, pound the shift seals in and put new seals on top.
