So I’ve been trying to get the new heater core tubes to seat but I’m not have any luck. I’ve tried having someone help out pressure on the tubes under the hood, with little success. I’ve got the bottom tube seated but the tip tube will absolutely not seat all the way. I’ve read through the posts and watch some YouTube videos on the replacement, but nothing shows getting the tubes to seat properly so they can be clamped and tightened.

Any suggestions?
