I have the timing cover off for kdp and putting the new crank seal in is a big pain in the rear. I got it in finally and it's flush with the rear of the cover and fits on the crank nicely. My question is do I have to push it towards the front of the cover more or will it be ok where it's at. I used a felpro seal and it didn't have an installation tool included. So I just drove it in from the back of the cover. My crank does have slight wear that I can feel a rib with my fingernail. Not sure if I would need a repair sleeve or not as well. Thanks in advance.

Best place for the seal to be is where it doesn't ride on the rib you felt.
That way you won't have to use a sleeve.

I managed to get the seal up towards the front but now it has a slight gap between the lip on one side and the crank
Does the seal lip have to settle at all? And how far back is too far back for these seals
