Did you start the gear engagement on the first tooth of the sliding rack? As long as it doesn't get hung up in the range of motion of the the sliding rack (plunger?) allows it should be ok, even though if you can rotate the ring past the action of the actuation arm. The seals, I don't know, never saw them offered.
There could be a "notch" or wear spot, in the ring's slot where the actuating arm runs causing a hang up but you would think a just "factory" re-built turo would not have that issue. Another thought is the lack of seals causes the piston to lose pressure making the actaution pressure marginal and now the least thing, like sitting up for awhile, can allow a stick.
Thinking aabout those seals, I am not sure, even if you can find them, you can install them. It may not be straight forward as they are hard and don't look very flexible and therefore not easy to strecth and then shrink back to fit in the groves. I would try to find a new rod and piston or a used one.
If it were me, I'd order a build kit that has all the seals ( it won't have the ones on the plunger) and maybe, just to be sure include a new unision ring. and a new or used plunger. The seal kit is usually less than $50 and the ring and vanes might be another 100 or so.
