Default thundercat 31

has anyone out there had problems replacing the silicone stuffing tube. the old one came out easy enough, but the new one wouldn't go in. had to sand it down a little and even then had to put alot of force to get it in. I've replaced plenty of these in other boats with no problem.

There's a trick to putting them in, they have to be heated up then stretched first. Cutting a little bevel on the end helps also. They will return to shape after cooling.
