Re: Stihl MS291 (2014) Rebuild

As a continuation of this thread, I purchased the new OEM cylinder, piston and rings and am working on the rebuild.

I'm getting ready to seal the cylinder to the pan, but when I seat the crankshaft on the pan, I can't help but notice that the oil seals don't seem to be seating nicely. The oil seals appear to be in excellent condition. If you look at the attached pictures, you can see that the oil seals are sealed to the pan on the sides (1 & 2) but not on the bottom (3). The service manual states I should not be using gasket maker on the seals.

This is my first chainsaw rebuild, so I appreciate any help. Can anybody advise if they believe this is normal or abnormal?
