    I have not had any real trouble installing those o-rings. I just push around with my finger, then I inspect with a mirror before securing the cannister. Perhaps you have the wrong o-rings.

    The primary fuel filter gasket is Napa 5131. The secondary fuel filter gaskets are Napa 5070. These are good correct numbers, I buy them 100 at a time from WIX who makes them for Napa. The Wix numbers are 15131 and 15070respectively. JT

    As said above you have to order the correct gaskets most of the time. You also want to have the secondary filter a 10 micron and the final a 6 micron when using the stock canisters.

    I installed the WIX 33511 as primary and 33512 as secondary & final. The seals are a bit too small, so I stretched them a bit by placing it over the engine oil filter canister for a couple of minutes... (I was in need of a new seal because the old one was already very brittle...)

    If you can't figure it out then it's the wrong one. Just get the correct one, a little grease and install with one finger. Not a problem.
