I found two version.
this: http://www.skf.com/group/products/be...tion=6009-2RS1 which it looks like it has a deeper groove,

and this: http://www.skf.com/group/products/be...on=W%206009-2Z which it looks like a 'normal' groove. Which do you think is better?

Normally you fit the 6009-2z with metal shields so it can get gear lube.
The explorer version will also be marked 6009-2z but designated Explorer:

Note the Explorer has a higher load rating

Mine is 2Z - two shields. I doubt it would make much difference if it is z or 2z. The main issue is the condition of the bearing. For what it's worth, the SKF engineers advised me not to use rubber seals in the trans.

A little late update in case anyone else will face situation like this. I changed the seal and all is ok now.
But I also noticed that the hole for a big alen bolt that goes from the outside of the primary cover into the engine case is infact drilled all the way into the crancase. So maybe it was a leak there, but I dont know.
I put a bit of ptfe tape on the bolt just in case.
I put it more on 'the back' of the bolt, where threaded part of the bolt ends so it can't be sucked into the crankcase.

Glad the crank seal did the trick. I normally use a bit of thread sealant on that bolt.
