I always put just a very, very small drop of RTV on the seal ends where they meet. Offset the parting lines per instructions and coat the crankshaft with oil and you're good to go. I do smear a very light coat of high temp RTV on the seal seat. Most important is to make sure you install the seal correctly. You can put them in backwards and they will leak like a faucet.
