I always just used the paint on the seal when I do it. That is what it is there for. I may have a leak for a while but, it always evetually sealed off.

What slot are talking about? It has been a week since I have put in a Ford seal.

Tell us about what it was doing before you replaced the seal, and what's doing now. In particular, has the front cover ever been removed?

you may need a "repair sleeve" for the balancer.
