That would mean your shaft seals aren't function as they should.
You would need to determine the make and model of your pump to figure out which seal you need.

That should help...

I have a 953 track loader the throttle shaft on the injector pump is leaking oil do i have to replace the injector pump

Bad O-ring on shaft. You may be able to do it yourself, but definitely not a complete pump unless you have a cracked pump or serious injection performance problems thus bad engine performance. Double check pump shaft. area. may need to remove a cover to the drive. Usually, there is a diesel return line I suppose there is a slim chance that is pinched or plugged somehow. Check to make sure it's clear. Possible that supply line to Injunction pump is leaking at the connection, also usually a bad O-ring. Find a leak by
wraping a paper towel in places to discover the leak. Or there is
a black light kit with dye to discover leaks.

Onga 4352 Spa Pump is leaking from the opening in the bottom of the pump. I have opened it & siliconed the Oring seal but it continues to leak. Any suggestions?

I had a new pump brought to me once that continued to leak after replacing the shaft seal three times. Careful examination revealed a sand casting fault in the pump body. The water was leaking through the body of the pump. Have you replaced the shaft seal?

Moter leaks when filtering

Is it leaking at the motor shaft or where the filter gasket and pump housing bolt together? If between the two housings,then it may just be a matter of tightening the screws that hold them together. If it is leaking around the shaft, you will need to replace the mechanical shaft seal.
To replace the seal you will need to remove the housings and then unscrew the impeller from the shaft. There is a slotted end on the other end of the motor shaft for screwdriver. This will hold the shart still while you unscrew the impeller. The shaft seal is a precesion part so be careful when replacing it.
Let us know if this helps, Robert

When an oil pump is supposedly "leaking" while a maintenance/replacement is being performed on the timing belt [at a 100K checkup], where would the leak be "leaking to"?

The pump is driven by the timing belt, so the oil pump shaft sticks out of the engine to access the belt. The leak would most likely be the oil pump shaft seal.

Sounds like you’re skeptical.
