                  • Hi David,

                    I know you are extremely busy, but I have another question about end cap seals for motor shaft and linkage rods!

                    Which way does the cup seal face? cup of the seal to the water or to the inside? I am making my own seals from scratch now! The original motor shaft seal on the Albacore, the cup was facing to the water, but I am just double checking what the original builder did as well before I glue them into my end cap.

                    Thanks David!

                      No problem at all, Rob.

                      The 'lip' of the cup seal always faces the 'pressure' side. In this case, the water.
