[DML] Rear main seal double lip

Just another boring upgrade on an engine part.
I now have double lip rear main seals. Meaning that instead of one 
lip of rubber rubbing on the end of the crank shaft to keep oil from 
leaking into the clutch housing and onto the floor it now has 2. 
Normally this seal is replaced when the clutch is replaced because 
the rubber will wear out and a small impression is worn in the crank 
shaft. If you replace the seal and same lip will ride in the same 
place on the shaft and the leak will occur a little faster the second 
time. With the 2nd lip it's now almost impossible to ever leak again. 
The 2nd lip is naturally positioned on part of the crank shaft end 
that has not had a lip riding on the shaft and acts like the first 
defense in oil getting to the second seal to get out.
Up grade with a clutch kit is $10.00 or $14.95 by it's self.
