    Rear Seal direction

    I have been working on an old SLX780 1996. The rear crankcase seal has it's compression spring on the outside of the engine. Is that correct? I am thinking that the spring should be inside the engine. Can I replace the rear seal splitting the case?

    Spring goes on the outside.....and you'll need to split/reseal the case.

    Looking at the parts diagram, it appears there are two seals toward the rear. The inner seal has a lip that set inside the case. The outer one however just looks like a automotive dust seal that may tap in from the rear. The spring on this seal keeps coming off, so I was hoping to just pull the pump, remove coupler and tap in a new seal.
