I'm an idiot and destroyed the timing seal by installing the crank spacer backward, big side toward the seal, completely destroyed inner lip of the seal. Beer and engine building don't always mix. Do you think a repair sleeve will be enough or do I need to pull the timing cover back off and replace the seal?

A repair sleeve wont fix a torn up seal. Pull the cover, replace the seal.
