Mine was only open on one end so I put the open end in first and the end that was closed off facing out towards me.

Unless someone modified your cover, I don't see how you could install it backwards, but if you put the gasket and hole toward the inside of the engine, it is indeed backwards.
Can you post a photo of your cover? It should have a "blade" on it. The purpose of it is to align the filter so it properly covers the feed bores.

the OEM types have a gasket on the inboard end because they are so flimsy compare to the Scotts, and the extra squish of the rubber "seal" on the bottom is used to apply pressure to the real seal against the cover. The Scotts does not need this.
Another possibility is that you have the wrong Scotts filter element. Compare it to an OEM one.
