That’s pretty bad for 24 hours on a new seal, just sitting on the bench.

Can’t be a good seal. Looks okay, maybe not the right seal? Tap it back out, destroying it in the process. Not a big deal, I had two of them. Great, can’t find the other. Probably sitting in a box in my XJ, 1000 miles away. Is it even the right seal? It’s got the same part number and dimensions on it... Then... Oh cock.

New on right, old on left.

I’m an idiot.
