I got my seal from McMaster and have a question....This seal has a tapered side and the sealing "spring" is toward the large part of the taper. Ordinarily, I would put the spring side of a seal toward the side where the substance I'm sealing against is, in other words the spring side goes toward the oil, or in this case, toward the bottom of the distributor. What is the accepted installation in this application? If I install the small side of the taper first, the sealing spring will be visible....Thanks
