Hi again, Vladimir,
I wrote my first post before I read your second post. It definitely sounds like you have removed the flange first and then tried to install the sleeve. You must leave the flanges on and use the supplied tool to push on them (or a correctly sized pipe if you need to push it on further). If you want to remove a flange, which you will on the second sleeve, you only cut a small notch in the flange before installing - do not take the flange off. Then you install it by pushing on the flange and after it is in place you take off the flange.

It sounds like the issue is that you are trying to push on the edge of the sleeve, which is incorrect. You must only push on the flange, never on the edge of the sleeve. No special tools needed.
You install the first sleeve with the flange side down, that is, the flange goes on first and you do not remove that flange. Again, you are pushing on the flange, not the edge. You then cut a notch in the flange of the second sleeve and then put it on again flange first, sliding it down so it is very close to the first one. Again, you only push on the flanges, not the edge of the sleeve. Finally, you take a pliers and remove the flange of the second sleeve (not the first sleeve). There will be a small gap between the two sleeves after you remove the flange - not a problem as no seals rub there.
Hope that helps,
Cheers, Craig, SN#68 Sangaris
