    The drawing makes this seal look like some kind of o-ring. In actuality it’s more of a lip seal. Are you saying there is another seal behind this one that you’re using black silicone for instead? When I pulled the old one I didn’t see anything behind it. IMG_8206.jpg

    Yes it's an o ring behind the spacer. It's supposed to seal the oil from coming down the splines.

    Wow! I totally missed that. I bought from Baker a new spacer and the other seals I posted. I noticed the spacer had a bevel on the ID but totally missed the quad ring seats inside it. Since the small lip seal isn't shown in the drawing I thought that's what (14) was. When I pulled the spacer I never saw a seal behind it (explains why it was leaking). Makes total sense...I know what I'll be doing tomorrow! Thanks for the help.

    Sorry about not reporting the fix, so just under that quad seal put a bead of RTV , then put the quad seal on , then your spacer, and it worked for the fix, Mr Wright know the reason for this , but it does work.
