Are there any tricks to get the piston and ring into the sleeve. I can't seem to get it to slide in.

find out where the ring pin is. Should be at the 11:00 or 5:00 positions as I recall. Spin the ring around so the ends are on each side of the pin. Lube the liner with triflow or afterrun oil. With piston at TDC, ease the liner on from the side opposite the ring pin. You have the liner tipped just a tiny bit so you can essentially push the ring into the ring groove and walk it closed on the pin as the liner slides down over the ring.

Hard to describe, easy to do.
