Tried to call you Matt.
Looks like you'll need to drop the oil pan in order to get at the seal. There is a specific way the seal seats in the block according to what I have read on the internet. You have to make sure that you get all the seal and all the crap out of the groove to ensure complete seating.
Did you call Mr. Janke like I said? He'll give you advice.
