Don't feel bad. I still have a front seal that needs "fixing". When I changed the cam, I got in a hurry and didn't feel like taking the time to loosen the oil pan to get the gasket on the bottom of the timing cover in place. So... I just pounded the timing cover on with a rubber mallet and smeard silicone all over down there.
