On the 12001598 kit, does the spring loaded sealing face of the tub seal, which faces up; require any lubricant or soap during replacing. It comes into contact with the bottom side face seal of the aluminum basket drive and I was wondering if these seals or the dry type since they or face seals and spring loaded on one side. Also, I have a spanner socket that allows removable and install of these, that is turned by means of a 1/2" drive, which allows a torque wrench to tighten properly. Do you have a torq spec for basket hub drive to transmission snout?

ANSWER Warren, There is no lubricant needed to install the spring loaded face of the tub seal. we do not have torque specs for the spanner nut.
