Next, you just set the oring around the pins on the base plate. make sure it is Around the pins, and not on top of any of them. Next, you just set the top part of the block onto the bottom, and press firmly. Slowly, with a blunt object of some sort (had a pen lid lying around that worked), work through the gap between the base plate and the top, pushing the rubber o-ring into place all the while squeezing the two parts together. after you get around each side, the ring should be in place, and there should only be a little gap between the sections. Now just put the screws back in, and tighten away! Took me no time at all, literally less than a minute. No fuss, no leaks!
Heh... that's the way I did it. Still took me a couple of hours to actually get it in there..... :)

I think there might be a couple of different O-Ring manufacurers for Swiftech and one of them uses some pretty stiff rubber. :)
