Check to see if a groove is worn into the part that the seal rides on. If it is grooved then there is your problem. The fix is to either replace the grooved part or use a speedi-sleeve to repair it if available.

There is a groove, thank you!! That is the conclusion we came to as well. We will fix this and hope it works!
