you can apply a small amount of dish soap on the outside rubber portion
to make it easier to insert it into the metal outer tub as well as
a little on the bottom inside diameter of the boot to assist sliding it down on the inside lip of the outer tub.
you dont want any lubricant to get on the bearing sleeve, housing, or the face of the bakelite seals and should make sure
they are clean and dry using a paper towel before installing. sometimes some grease gets on the face of the seals when they package the part. the boot seal does have grease inside that gets squished out sometimes.

Not much more to do but get the drum cover tightened down, reconnect the left side water tube, fasten down the top cover and do a test wash. More to follow.
Want to say, wouldn't have, couldn't have, done this without you guys. It wasn't that hard of a job and I'm sure I saved 100"s over havin a repair guy come over and do this. Thanks so much.
Here's what's left of the old sleeve.
