On the early Ford type U-joint, just make sure the C-ring grooves align with the slots in the yokes. The C-rings can then be pressed into the grooves.

Be careful with those C-rings! They are made of spring steel and will fight you when pressing them on. Wear eye protection in case one takes flight and grip it securely so it doesn't get away from you. I had one get loose and, after hearing it ricochet around the garage, I never could find it.
