heat the crankcase a little bit with a heat gun, and the sleeve should
drop in easily.

Heat the Block & Freeze the sleeve, Elimentary Science class!!!! When it cools it'll be snug to a tight fit. Freeze the Sleeve the night before.

Just oil it up (the sleeve) and heat the case up. I had an incredibly tight fit once, this made it so much easier.

Only it might be a nightmare to get it out in the future.....

I always use a scotch brite pad or waterproof sandpaper to wrap it arround the sleeve and turn the sleeve arround with my finger, it will make it a fraction smaller.

Getting it out WILL be a PITA, I know because even though I used the zip tie method, after many times of cutting the tie, I did eventually get the sleeve out but later found a gouge mark in the piston side - but it was serious enough to do any damage, I just made sure nothing was protruding off the edge.
