Im having trouble getting my TA back on -- the new oring makes such a tight fit, Im not getting the cover anywhere near flush on the transom. Without the oring, the TA slides right on, the holes line up - everything is great. Ive tried soapy water, with no improvement.
I did a couple searches, and found only one similar thread. Suggestions found include tossing out the oring and using silicone, and using grease/vasoline to lube the oring. Im thinking of putting the oring in some hot water for a bit to soften even more.
Any other suggestions? Maybe this is another of those 4-handed jobs Im facing by myself?
