While the Bird Cooked - Front Bearing Seal Question

I repacked the front bearings on my the ol gal today (71 220)
When I went to put the grease seal on it seemed a little strange, it just kinda sits on the opening and squeezes into place with help from the axle spindle.
I had to resist "driving it home" Does this seem correct?
I am use to my 126 where it actually seems to seat on the bearing race
Yes I did double (triple check ) that I had the right ones
Comments..............THanks
