Look, did you do as Resto suggested from the git-go? 'Cause disconnecting the kill wire ain't gonna do chit if you pinched it with the cover/shroud!!

What they are sayin' is, if the top bearing/bushing is worn to the point of allowing the crankshaft to have excessive shake/play in the bushing, then that is what prolly caused the seal to fail. However, it's not always the case!
I have seen and replaced seals that were leaking where the crank/bushing play was OK.
You should have checked for play when you had it apart...............
