Crankshaft Oil Seal Misaligned 200 1980

I found your comment and his comment.

Unfortunately, the crankshaft seal is misaligned despite his suggestions. Specifically, I cleaned both the cranshaft and the housing well. I used an ABS pipe and evenly inserted the crankshaft bolt through a hole in the cap of the pipe. I then rotated the crankshaft bolt slowly and evenly.

I'm wondering about using a small diameter wooden dowel to put pressure only on the area still sticking out?

That said, it's off by 2 mm or so. If I can't get it perfectly aligned, what's the risk of a leak?
