Do you mean the front pump seal? Did you use a little petroleum jelly on the pump gears before you put it back together? Pump may have lost it's prime. If you have a 1 pint or larger squirt bottle try disconnecting the feed side of the tranny cooler line and squirting fluid back into the tranny this might get to the pump and allow it to pickup a prime and start pumping.
