Rear oil seal leak

Has anyone used a “rear main seal repair” type additive in there A 4? The rear seal was one thing I did not replace when I rebuilt the engine. I have checked and rechecked to make sure it is the real seal and not some other oil leak. Would like to give the old seal a chance before replacing it. I only have a few hrs on the rebuild so maybe more running time will help?

Rear seal

Thanks for the input. I do have room to remove the reduction gear with out pulling the engine and have talked to Don about how to proceed. I did replace the main bearing during the rebuild. The reduction gear was cleaned and set aside for 4 weeks during the rebuild. Maybe I should have let it soak in oil to prevent it from drying out. Plan to wait until after storm season before I disable the boat again. Thanks Dan
