[V8] SEAL, Front Engine Crankshaft--TOO SMALL

I wonder if that is part of the issue... the fact that Audi says they're the same part. I bought two from Audi a couple years ago and only replaced the oil pump seal. It went in very securely which I feel now means that it was the right size/part. I did not however replace the crank seal. It was dry there and I didn't want to tempt fate. I can check it out p/n, measure it, etc.
I just wonder if someone at Audi decided that the two were close enough and "combined" them or if it they happened to have many more oil pump seals and again someone decided it was close enough that they'd sell those out and not reorder the crank seals.

If I remember right, I got my seals for cams,rear main, front crank and oil
pump (same as crank) from Bow Wow auto parts. They were all off the shelf parts
and fit just fine.
