The crankshaft rear seal has a dust lip that protrudes from the
rear face of the seal. The dust lip can be easily damaged if a
standard seal driver is used for installation. The 9U-6205 Rear
Seal Installer Group will help prevent damage to the dust lip.
The crankshaft rear seal is easily damaged.
Extreme care should be used when you install the
crankshaft rear seal. Damage across the lip of the
seal, which can be visually observed, will cause
leakage of oil through the seal.
