You should be able to get the sleeve back in with not much effort , just slide it between the header and the block and wiggle it back and forth into the hole.
Curiosity are you sure the entire
sleeves came out, or is there a possibility that part of the sleeve is still in the block and the reason you are having such a hard time getting the sleeve back in?
