so I just put my cub top end and a set of strait cut gears in and it smoking really bad out the clutch side pipe and it smells like gear oil so I'm thinking that I messed up the crank seal so I was wondering if you have to spit the cases or not to do that seal in there.

Yep... and do a leakdown before you button it up next time. But you better wait on splitting the cases, and make sure you arent leaking through the crank key between the water pump drive gear and the drive gear.

I second that. I was dumb enough to split my cases and replaced the seal. All I needed to do was pull the gear and put a little silicon in the keyway and on the key. Which solved the leaking / smoking problem. Listen to Bill he's spot on this problem.
