Installing new front or rear crank seals: NO LUBE!

FYI in case you didn't know (I didn't) when you install a new front or rear seal around the crankshaft, the OEM seals are Teflon.  Do Not put any lubricant on them, Teflon seals are supposed to be installed dry!

Us old schoolers who are used to rubber seals were taught the opposite.  If you don't lubricate a rubber seal it will fail sooner.
