Last week I replaced the right rear hub seal that had been leaking for a long time. I cleaned the surfaces and ensured there were no nicks on the axle tube or inside the hub where the seal sits. Pushed new seal into hub, reinstalled hub to factory spec (a buddy of mine who is a Ford mechanic looked up the sequence, including tq specs and sent them to me) and low and behold next day inside of wheel just as wet with gear oil as before I did the job. So today I started all over, but this time I pressed in new inner & outer hub bearings plus installed a new hub nut. Drive it home about 30 minutes away and again, oil streams all over the inside of the tire. I put a new rotor and pads on last week and since it had only been driven twice since I first did the work I washed the brake components off and finished them with brake cleaner so shouldn't be amy residual flying from inside the rotor cooling fins. Has anyone had an issue similar or can maybe think of something I'm missing?

Check the vent tube. It may be plugged up.
