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"

-> The FAQ is correct in that installing the seal deeper might give a new sealing surface. But nowhere in FAQ says its ok to install the seal crooked or misaligned.

Misaligned seal have uneven sealing forces acting on the crank surface prone to early oil leak.
