    Hi all new guy here needs some help.
    I ordered all new seals for my old speedcaster.
    I am having trouble getting the new seals in the cylinder, wondering if they need to
    hammered in... when I put the packing nut back on and try to tighten it down it only goes so far and I can still see exposed threads.

    I tried grease, lube and a pipe on the nut to tighten it down.
    Is there a service manual for these? I have the a users manual but nothing about this in it.

    Thanks for the help.
