Need help putting Tom Woods rear DS back together

I was changing all my u-joints on my rear DS. Decided to re-grease the slip joint after reading some posts on clunking noises. I pulled the male/female joint apart, it took some effort. There seemed like a lot of grease still there.

I need help putting it back together, as the rubber seal on the female end makes it a tight fit. The male end is too wide to insert into the female end (insert "that's what she said" here). See pictures.

I've tried forcing it. Help appreciated.

I'd call Woods. I don't think his are meant to come apart.
