This O ring was hardly pliable on the flanged clutch bearing sleeve which may not have been fully seated in the bell housing. Replaced the front seal, the O ring and polished away the shine from the seal on the input shaft. It's all back together now. Did the A minus B minus C math to verify proper bearing ring thickness. IN SPEC. CONFIDENT. Working on engine today to get it all back in the car

Did you ever pull the pan and observe the crank thrust bearing? Do you have an aluminum flywheel? Glad you got the leak figured out.
