OH, OH! Don't use two seals with a stock release-bearing shaft. Sure it may 
look like there is room for two seals, but the problem is that the inside of 
this shaft is the correct diameter for only one seal. The retaining ring is of a 
slightly larger diameter and if you stick a second seal in there in its 
place, it will fit loosely, eventually spinning and flopping arround destroying 
both seals. Use only one seal with the stock shaft. Vendor supplied aftermarket 
shafts are made to accept two seals.
