Couple small cuts into the housing, but nothing bad, thanks for your input!

I'm glad it worked, try to make sure there are no burrs in the housing before you put the new bearing and seal in

I have had the same experience with a plugged breather tube. Yes, it will cause the seals to leak as the rear end heats up and pressurizes. Sadly, I think my old seal was fine, if I had only figured out the vent beforehand. Good luck with your repair.
