RE: [DML] transmission seals

Sometimes replacing just the seals is not enough. The design of the seal is 
such that it can and will actually hold water against the flange resulting 
in corrosion and pitting. If the sleeve has been corroded like that there is 
a better than even chance it will leak even with a new seal. It is a good 
idea to sleeve the flanges when replacing the seals to prevent this. The 
added thickness of the sleeve also helps provide a tighter seal.

Did you check the condition of the flanges when you replaced the seals? If 
yes, what did they look like?
