Rebuilt and tapped gearbox blowing sector shaft seal.

I rebuilt my steering gearbox, tapped and ported per another members post and added a ram. Everything works as advertised until I go full left, as soon as I do the pump whines and the sector shaft seal blows out the bottom of the gearbox. Pretty sure the piston is going to far in the gearbox and over pressurizing the sector shaft cavity and blows the seal out. Anyone experienced this?
