Re: Centerstand Overhaul
Sorry the photo is not great. The seal is a "U" shaped cup and the open part of the "U" should be facing that aluminum spacer. If you look closely in the photo the closed end of the "U" is facing the spacer. I had slapped it together for a picture shot without noticing I had it backwards. And yes that is the seal you need to protect. Although I have never tried it you could slide the circlip and spacer onto the shaft then the seal and try to drive the parts into the nose. But I think it would be a challenge to get the seal into the nose while on the shaft. I have always just installed the items into the nose then inserted the shaft.
I have included my sources and a handy ID sheet for all the seals I use. You may find it helpful to ID the items you may be able to find in the UK.
