Default front engine bearing seal

Hi all just bought a new front bearing for my engine after the original failed, the bearing that came out had a seal on each side and the new bearing has a seal on each side. My question is should I remove a seal so that the bearing can be lubed by nitro or just leave both seals intact?

Cheers Shaun

I personally leave both on. Some may say to take the inner one out but myself I would rather have the extra leak/ dirt protection than the extra lubrication.

I always change mine to double seal bearing. Less problems with air leak and leakage out the bearing.
