Repeat HPOP Leak

Pardon me if this is covered alot but I couldn't find an answer by searching. I have a 97 250HD 7.3 with 253k on the clock I bought it with 230k. When I bought the truck the seal between the HPOP and the front cover was leaking pretty bad. Last summer the HPOP went out on vacation and a Shop in Springfield MO put a new one on for me and it still leaked just as bad after they put on the new one. Well last night the seal finally went all the way and oil was just pouring out. Any reasons why this seal would have still leaked after they replaced it? Couple things: the bolts weren't stripped or loose, the pump, front cover, and gasket all appeared good.

I think I've decided that the leak must be from the resevior. I let you guys know.
