    I had the exact same problem. I didn't use any new parts. I took the solenoid off and noticed that the little oil passage pivots and found that it was pointed right at the gasket. I spun it around to mate up with the corresponding passage, torqued to solenoid bolts, and have run over 6K miles without a drop or any seepage at all.
