    A little oil on the inside of the lip seal should help it slip over the shoulder of the crank.
    The outside of the seal needs to be clean and oil free though so it seats firmly to the housing. Don't want it popping out under a bit of crank case pressure.
    Make sure you knock it in square. Seen people deform them trying to bash them in.

    This is a long shot and would need to be careful nit to damage the inner part of the seal. You could try using something like a toothpick and as you place the seal up to the step with one hand, move the toothpick around the inside of the seal to get it over the step.
    I think the issue maybe the inner part of the seal is pushing in and turning inside out as it is pushed on.
    Just be careful of that inner seal surface a little nick will cause it to leak.
