Default newbie with 2nd question (rear main seal)

ok guys had the rear main seal replaced buy a craigslist mechanic now its leaking worse anyway he said he had to lower the crank cause he couldnt get the top half of the seal out,and now im re-doing it myself so my questions are....exactly which way does the seal go? i havent seen it yet but was told the cupped side goes towards the motor? and what is the rod bearing torque and order,so i can make sure he did it right if at all,i`m hoping that i can get the old seal out and new one in the way it was intended should have did it myself to begin with just wasnt sure i could handle it now i dont want anybody else to screw it up lol thnx guys for any and all help. p.s its a 99 1500 ram 5.2 motor thnx
