Ax15 front bearing snap ring won't fit

Is the bearing new? There is also a chance that it is also directional?
Thanks to everyone in advance! The bearing is new and directional. It only has one groove for the snap ring, so I know the direction is correct. I'm hoping once I shift through the gears it will "relax" into place. If not I guess I'll be taking it back apart.
Also check to make sure the bearing is fully seating, could be a radius issue. Also the snap ring could be directional.
I finally got it! I had to build a wooden stand to keep the transmission upright. A little love with a block of wood and a hammer did the trick. Thanks for taking the time RCP Phx.
