Hmm, this seems similar to my problem when I just got this block. I had to open up the block to use the am2 bracket. I had one hell of a time getting the o-ring in place because it popped out of place right when I opened it up. It must've took me like 1hr to set it in place because it kept popping out after I put in in the groove on top of block.

I eventually noticed that the only way to make the o-ring stay in the groove was to not roll it into the groove. Just try to place in the best you can until it's completely in the groove formed between the top of the block and the am2 bracket.

Once it's in place do not move the top of the block+am2 bracket at all. Just gently put the base on top of it and screw it in while holding the base and top together with your hand not letting go untill all screws are in. Also, the same principle applies to the o-ring jet plate, too.

So in short, the o-rings go in the groove. If there's no groove then it's not the right spot for the ring.

Both the the jet and adapter plate O-rings have a tendency to unseat themselves. Perhaps one, or both of the O-rings became unseated during the assembly process and became permanently deformed when excessive tension force (hence the stripping of a screw(s) during disassembly) was applied. Or perhaps the block was simply assembled beyond the tension tolerances of the block. Too tight and the O-rings will not be able to create a proper seal.
