The sleeve has a taper on the inside which compresses the seal as it goes in. The pin also stops short of the bottom of the tool which is why the length of the seal is important.

I do have a couple of them that I'll be selling.

1969 1750 Spider Veloce w/dual webers, 1969 1750 Berlina, 1971 1750 Spider Veloce w/ dual webers, 1985 Spider Veloce 23,000 orig. miles, {Two} 1986 Spider Veloces, 1987 Spider Veloce bought new, 1988 Quadrifoglio, 1991 164S, Plus several more. I think they are breeding.
