Default WPM Exterernal Steering Ram Seals

I have WPM steering rams and they both started leaking. Bought new seals, took the end cap off of the ram and removed the seals. There is one that fits inside the end cap about a 1/2" or son from the end that I cannot get the seal in. Has anybody experienced this. CP Performance says that one seal is really hard to get in so" we send them off to a guy and he does them for us. Anybody know how.. I tried for 2 hours yesterday and no go. the others seals are easy.

Ayuh,.... A little late, but,....

Many times you can get those stuffed into place with wooden dowels, plastic picks, Popsicle sticks, 'n yer fingers,....
Whatever works,....

The seal needs to be semi-folded, 'n twisted to get it in there, then ya gotta maneuver it back to it's original shape,....

Not really any 1 trick to make it happen,....
