    I put that tiny seal on the rear of the input shaft/clutch push rod seal in the way i found it.

    with the radial lip springs facing outward/rearward, but it seemed backwards to me.

    was this the right way? maybe it's trying to seal water out?

    i used the clutch pushrod and bearing surface as the seal-installer.
    it stayed nice and square. a tiny socket over the top tip of the rod without touching the bearing race surface, an extension and a couple of taps with a hammer.

    thanks

    second that, it's keeping the oil from sliding up to the front of the pushrod and fouling the clutch.
