oil cooler assembly questions

I hope im not buggin you guys with my rookie questions that may or may not be stupid.

I got the oil cooler assembly apart and cleaned for reinstall.

what is the best way to seat these o-rings?
I was gonna put it in a small press, but I thought id better throw it out there first.

second, I noticed there are 2 pins on the barrel, do these need to be clocked in a certain position?

finally, would you use oil or grease to lube these o rings up?

thanks!

People need to stop linking that video. Leaving the front cover on can result in damage, I've seen it, I've fixed it. Sometimes these covers can be very very hard to separate and press back together.

To the OP, this video shows how to put the cooler back together.

As for lube, I've used oil, engine assembly grease, wheel bearing grease, and vaseline. It's surprising but vaseline is the best I don't know why but it makes it press together the easiest.

I thought it was kind of insane not to replace the other gasket as well, while you are there...

That too.

But yeah do what he did in the video to line up the two ends as close as you can and you're golden.
