Put the seal on the tank first, then put the pump in. You could also lubricate the seal with diesel to help the pump slide all the way down.

Thanks got that bit sorted now! Using a bottle jack and some wood to push it down! Just can't seem to get the steal ring to go round without it popping back up!
