Turns out I was dumb and you can indeed hammer in the crankshaft seal with a 2" PVC coupler, ideally with a matching cap, and a rubber mallet. Total cost: About $7 ($4 PVC + $2.50 hammer).

It's a little deeper on one side but well within the 0.25" margin called out in the Bentley - it just drives my inner perfectionist mad seeing it. Still need to get under and tap in the bottom side of the seal just a tad more.
