300TD Suspension pump rebuild question

I purchased the seals for the suspension pump as mine was leaking.

I see 2 things that I am not comfortable with.

First the bronze sleeve on the engine side. There is an passage hole that is about 50% exposed, leaving me to wonder if the sleeve had been pressed properly.

Next, nothing that I read makes clear to me, how far in the double seal should be pressed, again on the engine side. Should it be flush with the housing or pressed in deeper?
