Rear axle oil seal groove

What alternatives to speediseal have you used? My axle has a groove from the oil seal ; normally a speedisleeve be fine. However, on the rear axle, the rear axle bearing is aft (outside) of the oil seal sealing surface. Which means, the bearing and retainer ring would have to go on first, then the speedisleeve. I don’t think the bearing and retainer will pass over the sleeve...

So ok for the first time. What happens when the bearing needs to be replaced after the speedisleeve is installed? Tear it off, machine off the adhesive used, and redo??

Alternative is weld up and machine the axle back to 34mm?

Thoughts? Thanks!
