Default xle-4040 O rings

I just got a new XLE-4040 membrane, it only had 1 O-Ring on it. Is it supposed to have just 1 or am I missing 1? If just one, which way does it go in the housing?
Thanks for the help in advance.

Hopefully it is not an o-ring. But shaped like a V. It only needs one. Mine goes on the feed end with the open side of the V towards the pump

Yeah it's not an oring, it's a rubber V like you said. So only supposed to have it on one end? I remember a post, I think it was Dieselpro that got one without anything on it.

It's one I built last year. I never had enough sap last year to try it. It's a 4"x40 with a 330gph procon pump, and just a standard 4" housing from freshwatersystems.com.
