trim the bottom of the cover(the lip) to be able to shove the seal for the oil pan back in. or losen the oil pan bolts and wait for a leak

Yeah, the techincally correct way to remove and install the timing cover is to drop the oil pan, then pull cover, then reinstall cover, then oil pan. If you dont want to go to all of this trouble, you can usually just trim the bottom of the cover to get it back together like s1037s described. I've never done this myself, since everytime I pull a cover on a Chevy, the oil pan gasket seems to leak and need replaced anyway, but it is a pretty common practice.
