Having a little trouble installing new sleeves with o rings. I cleaned block until they would easily turn without orings. Using Crisco as a lube on the orings. Couldn't push them with hand pressure but would go in with rubber mallet and block of wood. Took it back out, orings okay. Shop manual says to use hand pressure only. What should I do?

Put them in with the hammer and wood and forget about them. Very few I have done pushed in with just hand pressure.

try using a differnt type of soap like dishwashing liguid ,apply this to the orings as well as the surface where they seat- double check the orings to make sure they are not nicked up slowly put the sleeve in the cylinder and when the first oring touches gently give the sleeve a 1/4 turn while pushing it in and then one more time for the bottom one you should have it . you will be able to feel it each time a oring snaps into place. Do not force them in. if you still cant get them you need to clean the cylinder more. Lyle

Hmmm People must have been somewhat stronger when the manual was written.

the main thing is they don"t go in too hard or you will roll the oring and it will leak. been there.

I always put the sleeves in the freezer overnight and pulled them out and slide them right in. As they warm up they expand and seal right in.

Works better in the winter when they stay cooler longer. If on a hot day in the summer, you have to work fast.

Just a thought
