KLRCraig, One should always confirm that seals are squarely installed and fully seated. But in this case as we discussed earlier, there is No inner lip to seat against. So we install flush with outer lip of engine case. (I would normally install the seal before the collar, to ensure the seal lip doesn't get rolled inside-out.)
Is it still leaking? With degreased and dry parts one can spray cheap white or gray foot powder around suspect area and allow to dry. Then start the engine and watch for the powder to discolor, usually see the source in a few seconds.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
