It is quite common for your rear main oil seal area to wear grooves in the seal area of the crankshaft or pulley. 80% of modern engines have a round oil seal  … earlier models have a 2 piece rope seals.
There are a number of ways you can fix this

1. Buy a new crankshaft (expensive repair.)

2. You may be able to move the seal to a different location in the housing, making sure you do not cut the seal area sliding it over the existing wear grooves.

3. Fit a speedi sleeve. this is a cheap repair cost, can be effective, once again make sure you do not cut the seal sliding over the speedi sleeve.

4. Metal spray the seal area with a harder compound to prevent the wear from occurring again  (a 10-year warranty on the metal spray) this is a common repair.

Preparing the seal area for metal spraying this can be done  on a Toyota, Nissan, Cummins, caterpillar and diesel engine or shaft
