DId this exact job, The problem is that the seal is done through good machining with rubber only working to support the good tight machine fit. I had no luck resealing mine. It slowed down but did not stop. I found a used pump for $100 and popped it on, now the engine is dry as a bone. I talked to my mechanic and he said when these usually leak from the front seal they are almost impossible reseal. The rear seal is easier to do and can be rebuilt more sucessfully.
