I was scanning through the Common Service Manual and ran across this page...







Does that mean an oil seal like Final Shaft oil seal, Camshaft oil seal (at tach), Water Pump oil seal... for example

I know those seals are 3-sided with a spring in the middle...



In my mind's eye I can imagine packing that with grease would preserve the seal/spring better than just engine oil perhaps, but I don't know.

I did that for all the seals, but I didn't think/know to PACK the seal with grease.

I'm sure the seals will function just fine without packing, but I wanted to see what you all do during install.



Simply conversation at this point for me, but maybe it would help someone next time their engine is apart.
