Fuel bowl install problem

Hey guys.... Just got done rebuilding the fuel bowl. I have everything back in and installed except the back left fuel line (looking at it). I cant get the nut to thread over the new sleeve. I've made sure its the right one and it appears to be lined up. Do you guys have any tricks?

Thanks,
Brian

You sure the old one isn't still in there?

Shouldn't be hard at all to do...
