I stupidly tore into the clutch slave without taking pictures of what I was doing and now I'm sort of lost.

This little sleeve was in the slave cylinder piston, it had a rubber seal that was completely trashed around it. But it didn't look like it did much of anything. It doesn't fit with the new oil seal.... Is it OKAY to omit this from the assembly?




This is the rubber seal I was talking about, the book lists it as an oil seal... BUT from the looks of things it doesn't protect against ANY oil or fluid leaks... What is its purpose?




The reason I'm wondering is I installed the seal upside down, then GENTLY removed it and put it in the right way, but I hurt the seal.. as you can see around the clutch pushrod





Cliffnotes:
1. Do I need that sleeve? The new rubber seal is different from original
2. Does that "oil seal" that looks like it does nothing REALLY matter?
3. If it doesn't really matter, I shouldn't worry about that slit for now, correct?

Or is that oil seal supposed to replace the crankcase seal?
