Ummm...is the clamp loosened?
And yes, a lubricant can make for easier work.

the rubber boot fits on the intake manifold and the carb pushes into it … no clamps … a little lube can help it go together

wish I was more help … I can't think of what might be keeping the carb from installing … I've done this on my Road King and Sportster several times and they just push together … even with a new rubber sleeve … I'll have to look mine over tomorrw and see if I can find something
