Oil leak out of weep hole under water pump

I have allot of oil coming out of the weep hole under the water pump. This is the second time this year. I replaced the mechanical seal behind the water pump and it still leaked. I'm no professional so I had the dealer do it. It seemed ok for a while but now it leaking oil again. The strange part about it is twice it started after moving it around in the garage. Had not problems when riding but weeks later I pushed it on and off a truck then next day I have a puddle under it. Any advice or what could be causing it.

Oil leaking out the pump indicates a bad oil seal. This can be fix with out splitting the case and not replacing the pump

Coolant leaking indicates a bad mechanical seal. Better to replace the pump.

Sorry, been out of town. Thanks for the reply. Which oil seal are you talking about? Not seeing it in the breakdown or is it the seal just behind the impeller. Can you give me more deals? I would really appreciate it.
