No need to pull the timing chain. Remove drive belt and then remove the crankshaft pulley. use a screwdriver with a piece of cloth wrapped around the tip so you don't damage the seal bore. place the new seal square with the bore and use block of wood or a socket smaller diameter than the seal and a rubber mallet to insert the seal flush with the crankshaft bore. put back on the pulley and tighten according to torque specs in your shop manual then reinstall the drive belt and run engine to check for leaks.
