I replaced my seal assembly, and all gaskets today. I now have a very small leak, more of a seep at the top, center of the joint between the housing and seal plate. I have taken the bolts out, reapplied lube to the housing gasket, and bolted back together being very careful to make sure everything is seated correctly. No matter what I do I still get a very slow seep of water on top.
Should I try silicone on the ribbon gasket? Could something else cause this (was not leaking before). Is this something I even need to worry about since the leak is so small/slow? I'm a perfectionist and have taken it apart 4 times now. Driving me crazy!
