front oil seal not staying in...

replaced my oil seal oil ring and my front seal on the oil pump..
button it up.. torque on the crankshaft pulley etc..
start car ..
car would run and idle no leaks.. rev & hold at 2000 rpm.. leak would start from under crankshaft again..
i take everything apart to find the oil seal pushed out and loose..

repeat process twice.. same result..

1. too much oil pressure?
2. bad seal ?

Is this oil seal an easy DIY? All of the sudden I have a pretty wicked oil leak pass side near the crank I'm guessing hoping its an easy repair. My ng900 has 274k and I want her to keep rolling!!

It's pretty easy.

1. Jack up, take passenger wheel off
2. Remove passenger side wheelwell liner
3. Remove serpentine belt
4. Remove main pulley, single center bolt (you may have to loosen passenger side engine mount to allow engine to sag enough to remove the pulley)
5. Remove big honkin' circlip on oil cover face
6. Pull off oil pump front cover

7. Reinstall in reverse
