On the original main bearings the 2 notches are going towards zero depth at the outer end of the flange. This is to reduce oilpressure on the seal.

I believe I have original bearings, so while I'll lie awake at night hoping this is so, I am pretty sure my problem was ovality. I would also expect that additional pressure on a lip seal would help seal the shaft, but leak on the case.

Anyhow, I think mine is fixed. So far no drippage.

Case closed, no pun intended.
