Main Shaft Seal Shovelhead 4spd

Did I put this seal in backwards. My bike leaks bad!!! Not sure of the terminology but I think it is a cup seal. As you can see from the picture the flat side of the cup is out. is this right?

If the brass bushing in the final drive gear is worn, a new seal won't help.
