Installing Flywheel Seal

Is it a better bet to install the flywheel seal when sealing up the case or waiting to install it once the case is together?

Thanks,

I've only done it once, but I did it while sealing the cases. IIRC I torqued the through bolts then installed the seal and after that I then torqued the perimeter bolts/nuts

I always install the seal when I put the halves together. Its much easier and you dont have to make the seal install.
I put the halves together and install perimeter nuts fiirst because the sealant is fresh.

Ended up installing while sealing the case. Went together fine. Nice and square. BTW I opted to install dry as most are now recommending around here.
