Does oil seal orientation matter?

    I have myself a NP205 to TH350 adapter plate in preparation for my 205 swap tomorrow (thanks to fortcollinsram/Chris). I noticed that the oil seals in it both face into the adapter, like this:

    Are they supposed to be that way? It seems like it'll be harder to drive the seals in that way, especially beause I'm good at destroying seals. /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    I want to put them back like:

    Does it matter which way they go?

    thanks!

    You want one facing the trans to keep the oil in it and one facing the tc to keep the oil in it.

    So that'd be the top picture?

    Do I pack the adapter bearing with grease?

    They'd be nicer pictures if the were correct! I got the bearing location wrong, it should be:

    So then the bearing gets lubed with ATF from the tranny.

    And I managed to drive the seals in as shown with destroying them! /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    cheers,
