I just took the right side cover off to replace a leaking gasket and noticed the crank seal was chowdered up a bit and the spring was exposed about 1/3 of the way around the seal. I know the previous owner and he said he replaced the water pump seals but not the crank oil seal. The seal lip and spring was facing the crank when I took it apart after removing the washer and snap ring. Is this the correct direction? It seems backwards to me but with it facing the other way there would be a chance the spring could come off and enter the oil system. My manual doesn't detail the seal direction and my searches turned up nothing.
