How far to push front cam shaft seal in?

I've replaced this seal twice already with Elring and terrible results. I've got a Volvo seal now and it doesn't seem to want to go in as far as the Elring did. I'd say it's about 1/16" further out from being flush. Is this correct?
On a replacement seal I try to seat them about a sixteenth of an inch out from flush. That provides a new shaft surface for the seal lip to run on rather than the old groove.
