V10 generator r&r problem

I bought vws seal installer kit to do the seal on the generator output shaft of the motor. The outer rim ribbed rubber of the new oem seal (07Z-903-107) is not a tight fit into the crankcase like the old one, to the point where it does not want to stay in right up to its metal rim. Should I worry? Or maybe use some Permatex #3?

OK
Think I found the problem:
The metal cup-like part of this seal is about .003 in larger diameter on the new seal. If the cup passes far enough into the motor casting, the outer rubber rim of tne seal stays flush with its hole. I have ordered another in hope that it will measure like the original. If not, guess Ill dremel the lip of the casting.
