Default anyone else had this problem

So i just got my new Jaybird false bottom and i'm having some trouble getting it to fit with my copper dip tube from bargain fittings. maybe there is an order of operations to putting the pieces together that im over.The dip tube is attached to the bulk head when i try to get it in the hole of the false bottom (i know im setting my self up for something there). Then when i get it in there i cant get the bulk head to seal so it leaks. What do you think is the problem?

Perhaps the dip tube is too long/short and is applying pressure on the weldless fitting causing a leak.
