As Evan has mentioned, non-genuine rope seals can give problems due I believe to the harder material in them. I don't know if it is the same seal for the diesel version but they are likely to be the same.
If that is the case I have fitted a genuine Perkins one to an MF 35 in the last week. After these problems I will not fit anything else now.
The seal in a sealed Perkins bag was supplied by MF agent PV Dobson under part number 36883119 with the retail price of £20.22.
Like Evan, I know nothing about any kevlar content so I would have to question the authenticity of that.
On reading the posting my first thought was the sump gasket fitted incorrectly. The cork strip which goes around the rear main bearing cap can be awkward to fit at the best of times. I have also found that the cork material used in non-genuine gasket kits is stiffer than the genuine kits. The upshot is that the strip will not remain in its recess in the cap without using a sealer/glue, holding it in place and letting it dry overnight before fitting the sump.
It's a difficult call to make which one to go for. If your repairer will state categorically that they have fitted a genuine Perkins seal then the sump has to be the first option.
