While unpacking a new unit, I accidentally pulled out one of the rubber seals on the side. I immediately put it back in but is it ruined?

the rubber seals on a new replacement Compressor ?

 

Compressor should be OK, but would need the normal nitrogen / "evacuation"

which is done when a Compressor is replaced

Compressors are shipped with a vacuum in the them......If you get a new compressor that does not have  a sucking sound when you pull the plug (s), you are to reorder the compressor............I have pulled the plugs and it took a day to get to the install, all you do is reinstall the plugs ..........Install the compressor  and do the normal evacuation and charge.............You cannot let a compressor set/sit  open to the atmosphere, the oils inside like to suck up moisture, ( antropic could be the word).....

Tecumseh actually recommends that you drain the oil and replace it because of the amount of moisture that it can absorb.  I would just dry the system with nitrogen myself and charge it.  The filter/dryer should take care of any residual moisture.
