Hi guys

Currently I'm changing the big seal in the final drive on my 87 rt. Im in doubt how far I should press the seal in the housing. Is it supposed to sit flush with the surface inside the housing or the outside of the housing? 

Best regards

I pushed mine in so that it was flush with the outside of the housing and it hasn't leaked since it was done. When I say 'pushed mine in' I mean exactly that - I just used my thumbs and went round the seal evenly. Grease the outside of the seal first.
