I need to know which way the Backup Ring goes on the shaft below the seal.

As you see in the attached picture mine has a definite lip on one side and it smooth faced on the other side.
The lip is just large enough in the recess that the seal nests in it nicely.

When I tore this down I did one side at a time but then noticed the seals were actually installed upside down. It is a 3 lip seal and the double lip was up with the numbers inside toward oil. From what I can find a 3-lip seal goes with two lips to the oil.

So now I wonder which way I should install this Back-up ring. Every site I have looked at the ring is just shown and not enough definition to determine if it has a lip or not.

I have them all installed in the correct order and they follow the manual just the actual direction of this ring is elusive.

I will keep looking but every manual I have looked at thus far does not differentiate between lipped or not on the backup ring.

Thanks in advance.

It is the right direction in the picture.

Thanks that is what I was thinking but felt more comfortable asking the knowledge resources out here.

That was a really fast response. Thanks Dave.

Now I can get her back on the ground tonight.
