ok, so i'm putting new seals in a 2 stroke bottom end. it's 74 puch 175, and it's built a bit different then everything else i've worked on. normally i would place the seal lips facing the crank, and that's the way they were oriented when i split it (it's been opened before sometime in it's life). BUT the manual clearly states "large seals lips must point to the bearings" BUT the parts fiche (see pic) shows them oriented with lips facing the crank. obviously seal1 lips has to face toward the bearing. oh and before i split it i was wondering how the hell the ignition side bearing got lubrication (normally the dry side bearing in 2 strokes gets lubed with pre-mix) both bearings on this motor gets lubed from the gearbox - they cut a channel behind the bearing to feed it oil. so do seal2 and seal3 go lip towards the bearing or crank? since neither bearing is lubed via pre-mix i would think the lip faces the wet side(bearing). but every 2 stroke i've ever done i put the lip toward the crank (and normally the bearing is inboard, and the seal outboard).. since the the seal works off pressure, and the crankside gets both negative and positive pressure.... but on this bottom end neither bearing gets lubed with pre-mix. so do the seal lips go towards the pressure (crank) or the fluid (bearings)?? had to split cases to replace seals, so i'd like to get it right the first time. a picture helps.
