Is this seal in correctly? (pics inside)

So I'm taking my trans out for the 2nd time, trying to fix a leak that has been coming out of the weep hole on the trans adaptor. So I'm replacing the output/input shaft seals on the trans and transfer case. Here is my question....

Is this seal in correctly? Should it be flush with the case (2nd pic) or should it be all the way in until it gets close the the bearing (1st pic)?


2nd Pic (keep in mind I am reusing the old seal just for the picture)

I don't remember, that's the problem. I think I had it flush the first time and it was still leaking.

Look at the shaft and you should be able to see where that old seel was riding. If the shaft is worn you may want to move the seal a little so that it seals on a fresh part of the shaft, if you can. A seal over time will wear a grove on a shaft and replacing it with a new one may not completely seal. Moving it a little to a new spot will let it seal to a shaft better.
