I have just replaced the mech seal in my 700 prairie along with new oil seal and followed manual to the T put some antifreeze in system to check for leak and out of the catch tube drain its leaking again part # 49063-1055. I was as detailed as a surgeon and cleaned generator cover where seal and mechanical seal went .No leaking from generator case at all anywhere. I installed mech seal in carefully and know it has blue sealant on it .How can this leak is this normal ? I have not started or turned anything over on the engine and ceramic seal is new too that goes onto impeller.

Looking for some help
Thank you

Well either the seal assembly is cocked or not installed square , or the ceramic could be cracked , or there may be a deep scratch in the aluminum mounting surface.
