Since the crankshaft seals are not made like a conventional seal, you will need a special tool to hold the sealing lip back and expanded as you press them into place. I used a section from a yogurt container to hold the seal lip back when i replaced flattbutts outer seal... I got lucky and it worked.. I plan to make some seal installing sleeves on my lathe next time though, as getting them in right is essential .
