So on the rear brake panel for the drum there is a bearing in it. The oem bearing has a regular black seal and a seal that has little indentation's all around the seal. If i remember right the indentation side of the seal points to the wheel while the black smooth seal points to the center. Is this correct?

Also where is the reference measurement for the depth of the bearing (how far down you drive it into the panel) taken from? The outside(wheel side) of the panel or the brake shoe side?

Bike is a 99 300fw....
Thanks

bearing goes in from inside from differential. there is a dust seal, snap ring, then bearings. the seal ( bearing race seal ) faces inward, and outward. in other words, this bearing is considered a double roll bearing ), or two bearings stacked in the backing plate. when you unbolt the backing plate from the swing arm, you will see a large o-ring, a dust seal, snap ring, then your bearings. you can only tap them down until they '' seat '' inside the backing plate. pretty simple job to replace them. hammer the bearings out once you pry the dust seal out, snap ring. clean the bore up some, grease the bore and bearing, hammer it down with the seal facing down, then grease the next bearing, hammer it down in the backing plate with the inner seal facing up, then put the snap ring in, then dust seal, bolt it back on. also, now would be a good time to remove the brake cam, clean the bore up, wire brush the brake cam, some grease on the cam and bore, install back in after you bolt the backing plate back on. pretty simple to do all this.

The rear brake panel has no snap ring or stopper for the bearing to bottom out on. There is a 9-10mm range honda wants you to go down inside the plate for the bearing. Also the oem bearing has 2 completely different seals on it. As I stated 1 is black and smooth like a typical seal and the other is green with indentations all the way around.

Maybe it is different on other years but my 99 is like I stated.
