Exchange dust seal upper trunnion

Hi,
I must replace the upper dust seal as shown in the picture below. Do I have to completely disassemble the whole (top and bottom) or it is possible to disassemble the upper part only?

Re: Breather question.

In my car the breather of the rocker cover is connected to the air filter, while the other breather is connected to the carb. Would it be wise to connect both to the carb?
