Back axle oil seal/leak

Good evening gentlemen

I have a MG back axle and it is spewing oil out of one side, well, not spewing, just weeping. But enough to soak the pad.
I see in the wkshp manual that no paper gasket is required between the flange which holds the oil seal and the axle casing itself. Last time I rebuilt it I made sure that both surfaces were flush, no burrs, and painted both faces with a fine film of 'Wellseal'. Still it leaks...
My Frogeye has such a gasket...any comments?
