What product gets coated on the outside of the seal where it contacts the aluminum, and what gets coated on the inside of the seal where it contacts the crank shaft.

I use some grease on the inner part of the seal where the crank rides but nothing on the outside.

Thanks for the replies. I thought it might have been a stupid question, but I see there are some different approaches here.
