As far as I know, the timing cover must come off to replace the crank seal. Probably not what you want to hear.

grab a service manual if you dont already have one, you should be able to tell from the pics if it is possible or not.

I find you are usually better off to pull the cover to inspect and check all the bolts.

I have changed a few on the truck and it's not too much of a pain. The trick is to get the depth right. But you can go beyond flush a bit if you have a small leak and it'll seal it right up.
