Quick help needed on rear main seal!

Jeep Masters....Rebuilding my engine and was about to install rear main seal. Have a Fel Pro BS40612 seal. Which pic goes toward block and which goes towards bell housing? Getting conflicting answers when googling.

10. The lip faces forward (or to the front of the engine)

Dont follow the "offset" on the bottom video - its for a Ford, just a good way to see the seal orientation.

Thanks folks! I couldn’t figure out what the “lip was”. But I looked at the orientation of the seal that goes in the cap and matched it up.

Appreciate the quick response!

Luuca..... I watched the first video and that’s when I began questioning the orientation. Called Fel Pro and he had told me the opposite. Called them back and sent pictures and they said they told me wrong the first time.

On the second video....I didn’t let it protrude as he instructed. Being as ours has the ears in the cap, don’t see that working too well! But I see how it relates to the other video.....Thanks!

Now, ring gap questions....posted a new thread.
