When did you replace them? Is there a chance there is a problem with the seals themselves?

It has been several years ago, probably '03 or so. The leak started much like yours--right after I put it all back together. IIRC the seals were from caseIH. Maybe it was a seal problem, maybe not. In a steering gear where there's just not much going on, unlike a final drive or a transmission, I felt like the gun grease was a viable solution. Like I said most frown up it but it has worked for me and that is probably what I will do when I overhaul the Super A-1 and the white Super A. If you worry about the grease going "bad" just pull the drain plug from time to time and pump some more in--forcing the old grease out.
