Default How to install water pump bearing seals

I am wondering which way the bearing seals should face on the inside and outside of the bearing.

with the side of the seal shown what way should it face on the outside of the case and which way should it face on the inside of the case. The reason I am asking is because I thought I did it correctly the first time but now I am second guessing my work because the pump leaked out of the weep hole after assembly was complete. Please help!

Replacing The Waterpump Seals.

Here is a link to the tutorial.

The springs face away from each other. Based off of your photo, the "top" of those seals would face each other.

Ok, I had it right the first time. The reason it leaked was that I had put a hole in the new seal when installing it. Bike is running great now it is a blessing to ride again.
