If your fw bolts were loose, oil will come out of them, so the main seal might be OK.

What bolts did you use by the way, got a pic? If you use OEM bolts they're too long, you need caliper bolts, I think they're like 20mm long.

Did you have the metal shim plate under the bolts? I've heard of these flywheels coming loose when guys buy used ones and install the flywheels without the metal shim/washer thing, crushing 80 ft lb bolts into aluminum.
