    need help with drive shaft bushing and oil seals

    We have a 1996 Yamaha Wave Venture 1100 in which the housing and duct impellers became wrecked last summer. While pulling things apart, my husband didn't keep track of the way in which the drive shaft bushing and oil seals go.

    We have a diagram and know the order, but the seals have a groove on one side and not sure which way they should face (we believe it should be groove toward the front).

    Likewise the drive shaft bushing is flat on one side and the other side has 'prongs' that stick out. Not sure which way they should go.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. We want to get this thing back together and running as we have company coming in a couple of weeks. Thanks all!

    This is from the GP1200 manual but I think it might be similar.

    they are in that way because water pressure will actually add pressure to the cupped side makeing it a even better seal..
