I am currently building a 350 sb and looking for guidance on rear seal installation (1piece). The installation documentation with Fel-Pro does not go into much detail. Any help will be appreciated!

1) I assume the open side showing the spring faces in towards the block.

2) Should I use sealant on the OD of the seal and bearing cap?

3) Pretty sure I need to apply grease to the sealing surface?

Thanks

cc,
Do you have the entire seal housing off the engine ? If so be careful when you tighten it back up. It tends to want to move and get the seal off center. If you are real careful and tighten each bolt a little at a time until thay are all snug, it wont move. Just keep an eye on it while you tighten the bolts. I usually put assembly lube on the seal.
