There is an oil seal where the KIPS powervalve operating rod goes into the powervalve chamber. My question is which way this seal goes in. One side is deeply grooved - does the grooved side face in or out???????????

Thanks for your help!!!!!

Spring side of seal faces into the cylinder, make sure you have the gears timed correctly or you could have troubles with the governor balls falling out inside the motor. New 04 linkage peices are spring buffered. Team Green News has a bulletin on this, and setup tips try www.teamgreennews canada.com Good Luck
