MG Midget and Sprite Technical - Brake caliper seals

Just opened a pack of caliper seals, I have noticed that two of them are plain, the other two have a V cut into the inside circumference. Which one is the seal and which one is the dust cap? (piston seal being the inner one, dust cap the exterior one)

Didn't notice they were different when I took the seals out so no record of which one is which.

Thanks for your help gents.

The plain one is the fluid seal. The V is the dust seal.

Thanks Dave,

I was suspecting as much after consulting my Triumph Spitfire haynes manual (I haven't bought the midget one yet!) But wanted to check.

Thank you!
