I returned the core to red head and asked for a RCA (root cause analysis) on the failure, leak... they called back today and mentioned a metal washer had worn in one spot caused by sector shaft wiggle. That wear allowed fluid past it and ultimately past the seal when it was cold (the only time it leaked). Otherwise that box was still good to go.

The wear came from the bolts holding the sector shaft bearing to the brace coming loose and allowing the shaft to wiggle under load. I have since fixed that issue by using beefier bolts with lock washers. Which reminds me, there is only 1 way to install that bearing as its an offset bearing. Going to crawl under there and make sure it is positioned correctly since I did not do the install.

Hope this helps someone down the road...
