front crankshaft seal

Two questions:

1) The front seal on the crankshaft, the one located in the timing cover.. How important is it to change that? My motor has 50K on it but the timing cover is currently off which is why I ask. The seal wasnt leaking and it looks perfect.

2) If I do replace it, do I need a special tool to properly seat it?

Thanks.

1. not important
2. technically, yes, but any seal press should work fine.

Just keep the breathers clear and it will be fine.
