I looked over the article and there are a number of mods so assuming you performed most or all of them I would think that either a lip seal got knicked on assembly or a lip seal has rolled on you. It's really important that you use something to help get the seals in place along with a generous amount of ATF. My preference is a .010 feeler gauge - I have a long one that a shop gave me ages ago and it works great. Another that some people prefer is a piece of welding rod bent into a tight "u" shape. Cutting a seal is obviously an issue but a rolled one can act the same - and all it amounts to is that the seal is in place but either all of it or part of it "rolled" in the entended slot which creates a leak.
