However, according to the ZF manual the space between the body of the transmission and the screw on clip should be 2.5 to 3 MM and I have about 6-7MM.

I have the sleeve pushed in all the way until can see the line shown in the image.

Is this part supposed to be pushed in further?
You need a rubber coated hammer handle. Use the rubber end as a wedge to give it a little love as far as pushing the sleeve in a little more
