I believe the second picture is correct. When you take the cover off is there a part that fits snug into the o-ring? There should also be a spring all the way in the back, which goes between the side in picture one and the inside of the motor.

The second picture is correct. The rubber grommet goes toward the outside and fits over a hole in the cover. The oil has to be able to flow through the cover. Also, don't forget to put the spring back in between the back side of the filter and the crankcase. The spring holds the filter out against the cover.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Sweet bike! But if the piston is gone, you might want to check the top end to, odds are its on its way out... they don't last long without oil.

Whatever is currently in one piece... 400 prairie with stuff, 300 fourtrax, 500 sportsman, yz 125...
