Default HELP!!! Robart 650 Retracts

Hi all, I'm installing Robart 650's in my TF 60 Corsair, check out my pics. How do you install the adapter bushing into the strut without banging it. I can't get it to go any further without possibly damaging the strut. Instructions say the adapter needs to be flush with the top of the strut.

I use a vise to push them in.

when I did mine I dissmantled the strut,[watch that you dont lose the very small C clip on the oleo arm torque link]
make sure the top of the robo tube has no burrs,then sit the adaptor in nice and straight put the unit in a small press or large vise and very gently push the adaptor into the tube.
