ah. I see. I'll probably take it to a shop for removal and use a small adjustable wrench and get it as tight as I could

Adjustable wrenches aren't good for anything but rounding off corners on fasteners.

just finished about an hour ago. needed a new pump swell. I was going to ask. even tho there is very new oil that has been well flushed and looks very clean. should I drain and replace?

Since it was only a seal just run it through a sieve. You might actually have the weekend to yourself.
