I did get a reply back from auto parts direct, it reads as follows.

Again sorry for the hassle.
At lest they are willing to make it right!
I had another idea about fixing this problem leak, if a person had a way of cutting a circle (or ring) out of some cork that was thick enough to stand out a few thousands of an inch above the grove then a Hi-tack sealant could be applied and probably fix the problem.
