Hi my name is***** will be glad to help. The swing case pinion seal and bearing failure is the only way for oil to mix with the swing cavity grease and turn it into soup for it to leak. I am assuming you thoroughly cleaned out the swing cavity when you had the swing gearbox out. It is time consuming but needs to be done and new grease installed. There is a bottom cover to help drain and with the swing gearbox out you use a forklift or other machine to chain to the bucket and rotate the machine a foot or two at a time and scoop it out into 5 gallon buckets and a lot of shop towels and brake clean until it is clean. Then repack with new grease. Let me know
