Are you sure it's from there or from the hose block above it? My o rings went bad on the hose block and I had to change them.

Changed many pittman shaft seals. One trick was to remove the arm and the seal retainer snap ring then reinstall the arm loosely, fill with fluid and go hard lock to lock on the wheel. With luck the seals will blow out.
