Question Front Left Half Shaft Axle Journal Size

I installed a remanufactured Left Front Half Shaft (Cardone 60-2101) and a brand new seal (National 710429) into my 97 Mountaineer.
The shaft journal fits into the seal with only slight interference. There is no gap. But now the seal leaks.
I suspect the journal for two reasons...1) the seal matches the exact same numbers as the OEM seal that I pulled out; 2) I don't know how Cardone can refinish/grind/polish the used axle journal without removing some metal (unless they weld back in some material, but I don't see any evidence of that).

The remanufactured half shaft journal measures about 1.401 inches.

Does anyone know what the Ford OEM journal measures? (I had to return my OEM for the core).

Thanks.
