So I ran the bike for like a minute and a half, and all of a sudden water started spewing out of the seal shown below. 1998 YZ 400

I recently did the water pump and installed the seal listed below, is it supposed to be lower down the pipe into the pump? Does this look right?

There's a ridge on the pipe. The O-ring belongs below it. You have it above the ridge.
