Front Crankshaft seal: pushed too far? 200

I'm replacing the cam/int/crankshaft seals because of a slow oil leak I've had for a while. When I put the smaller seals in they went in fine and I have them in about 1/16" from the outside.

The crankshaft seal went in a little too easily and when I slid it in one side went in about 1/4" from the edge. I was able to even it out by lightly tapping with a piece of wood but I'm concerned it went in so easily and am afraid it might be in too far. I lubed it on the inside rim w/ vasoline and outside w/ 10w30. Did I screw up? Did it go past the housing? It's an orange colored seal from FCP.
