Look at the inside lip, not the outer lips. You want the little raised edge inside to to towards the side that will hold the grease, just like a harmonic balancer front cover seal.

Picture A has the lip wrong, Picture B is correct. Should be a felt pad that is inside the inner lip if not mistaken, donut shaped about 3/16ths inch thick, but I could be mistaken on that one, due to age of the vehicle.

Examining it, I had arguments for it going either way.

You're right Stan.  Every time I've had that type they confuse me.
