Okay, this probably a dumb question. I need to replace the crank seal on the timing cover for a 56 330 hemi. I ordered new seal kit from Best Gaskets p/n GS10192 and removed the old seal. When I compare the old to new they are definitely different. Question which way would the new seal be installed in the timing cover case?

Install the seal with the surface that has the part # on it facing you as you drive it in.

Sir

The Club Store has the 1956 - 1957 Oil Pump Re-Built Kit
at a lower cost than Kanters or etc.

Tim, There are no part numbers marked on the seal, and that is the problem. In the pictures I wrote with a marker "outside" to help designate which side is what. So the side of the seal with "outside" should be directed towards the engine or towards the radiator when installed?

Jerome;

I would tell you that the seal installs from the inside of the timing chain cover, and I would have the surface that you have written "outside" facing the engine.

However, the FSM illustrates that you want the lip of the seal towards the outside of the housing, so I would make sure that the lip of the seal was as far out as possible.
