Update #2 200 1980

FAQs said that installing the seal up to 1/8" (3 mm) deeper than the original seal is okay and might even give the seal a new gripping surface.

https://www.brickboard.com/FAQ/700-900/EngineSealsBeltsVent.htm#Replacing_Oil_Seals

So I worked a bit more on the seal. The portion of the crankshaft seal that was misaligned is now 1 mm past the tapered part, meaning there's only about 1-2 mm of uneven-ness with the seal's position. In other words, the rest of the oil seal is about 1-2 mm further in the seal housing.

Is this okay or do I risk oil leaks?

Thanks
