replacing seal in compufire alternator gl1500

I need to replace the seal in the compufire alternator I have.
How do you get the drive plate off the front to access the seal? Do you have to disassemble the entire alternator to hold the rotor or is there a way to hold it without complete disassembly? Also is the thread normal righty tighty, lefty loosey or is it left hand thread, lefty tighty righty loosey? I searched online but got conflicting information in the threads.

I'm sort of limited on tools where I am right now so I thought I would try to get everything I need to access the seal together before I pull the alternator.

Thanks for the help.
