Question Oil cooler?

Ok so my oil cooler was leaking so i got new o-rings for it and I am in the prossed of reassembling it. For some reason I can not get the front header part of the oil cooler to seat back on over the o-rings. I have put oil on the o-ring and put all my weight on it (255 lbs) and it just pops right off. It feels like it is seated or bottomed out and then when I take pressure off of it it just pops off. Whats the deal?

Maybe try using something more than oil to lube the o rings and parts. Syl glyde from NAPA or maybe vasoline or plumbers faucet lube. Also have read about guys using a clamp or strap to seat the ends. Good luck.
