Did the shaft have any wear rings on it from the previous seal? They are hit and miss my 02 has 112k on it and the seals have never leaked. I check it regulalry just to make sure.

Thanks,I am going to tighten it up a tad, I wondered the same thing,but there is a little oilon the vacume pump[where that bushing holds the seal in,] looking from the bottom, do you think the oil could blow onto it and looks like the seal leaks? from the return line?

Yes you'll get that with the fan blowing it around, looks like it's coming from the seal but it's actually just blowing up there. Tighten the fitting and spray it with some carb cleaner then drive it a few days.
