I never gave up on my wife’s convertible, so I’m in the middle of rebuilding the engine. Original problem was described here: http://community.cartalk.com/discussion/2150083/timing-belt-damage
So, everything’s cleaned up, the crank is in, and I’m trying to mount the rear main seal. So, um… which way round does the seal go? The diagrams from Haynes, Autozone, and the shop manual aren’t clear. The seal is essentially a U-shape. Does the open end of the U face into the engine, or towards the transmission?
