I noticed power steering fluid leaking up and around the threads of the adjustment screw on my 04 DII, so I ordered a reseal kit from LK8. Once I took the box lid off, I found the seal inside the lid to be very hard and soaked in fluid ;). Good for it, bad for me. Instead of checking to make sure the seal was in the kit, I removed the seal and then found out it was not.

Has anyone run into this issue before? I cannot seem to locate this seal. Pictured below is the housing, seal, kit, and the shaft the seal rides on. I am guessing I should have RTV'd the adjustment threads and called it a day...
