Just a small dab of grease is all that's needed on the seals.

One thing to not do is to try to either tighten or loosen the impeller unless you correctly hold the shaft with a box end by the flats ground on the inside end.

And I don't recall having heard of anyone pinching the seals, but people put them in backward all the time. Both water pump seals go in their pockets with the lips (open side) facing up at you as you install them.
