Tie Rod Troubles....

I'm swapping my outer DS tie rod (just the end not the whole assem) and I'm having a bitch of a time getting the end pressed in. Any tricks? I've heated it, jacked it, clamped it and it keeps slipping sideways instead of sinking. Maybe I should rotate it a bit to line it up better with the spindle piece.
Any help would be welcome!
