Fuel Tap Question

I removed the retaining ring of the fuel tap T selector (late model) to clean it up and I now have a hard time to put the retaining ring back on in such a way that the all assembly is tight. Right now, when I put it back, the ring is very loose in the groov, it does not want to remain snapped in, and the selctor moves all over the place. I presume that I made the ring out of round/shape when I removed it. Is there any trick to reshape the ring so that it can snap back in tightly? I do not want any gas leaks :)
Thank you in advance

Eric,
The cork gasket with holes punched in it has shrunk and needs replacing. Stoddard sells all of the gaskets, seals, and locking ring which are identical to Porsche 356. Here are some of the part numbers and cheap prices if you are interested.
