Crankshaft Oil Seal Misaligned 200 1980

Thanks.

I'm reluctant to remove the seal carrier.

So this issue involves a gray Elring #1276425 crankshaft oil seal:

Is it seal-safe and leak-safe to install oil on the outer lips?

The FAQs said that a Volvo tech told someone NOT to lubricate the outer seals, suggesting risk of leak. In the future, should I go ahead and lubricate the outer seals with oil to facilitate install? My 1988 crankshaft oil seal went on without too much difficulty and without oil on the outer lips.
