Shift Coupling Seal


I recently removed my Shift Rod Transmission Seal and am preparing to install a new one.  Unfortunately, I have seen conflicting information on the direction of the seal.  One side of the Seal has a spring inside of it & IMO the Spring side goes in 1st.  But I have seen at least one procedure calling for the opposite.  I was hoping to get one more opinion before I proceed.

Also, the use of a sealant on the seal also seems to go both ways - what is your opinion - Dry or with a sealant? Is there a general rule about when to use a sealant vs using none?



The trip and mileage odometer in my 1974 911 vehicle recently stopped working. The speedometer still works fine. When I originally bought the car new in May 1974 the trip indicator had some signs of oil residue around that area and when I reset it to zero was always difficult to turn. I asked the dealership about it and they said not to worry about it as long as everything worked. I can still turn the trip gauge using the manual reset knob and when I take it through the whole cyle zero to 999 cycle it will add mileage to the odometer.
