Default M1 Carbine sling and oiler too tight for installation

I did some research and I'm still stumped. I have an M1 Carbine with a USGI stock (appears to be of the potbelly variety). I have a USGI oiler and USGI sling with what I think are D tabs.

I've watched every sling installation video and I still can't get it on there. The well where the oiler sits is too small for the oiler and two pieces of strap that needs to pass through. I first thread the sling from left to right, then drop in the oiler (even at this point it's tight), and then bring the sling around the oiler and can't get it to pass back through the stock from right to left. I've also tried looping the sling around the oiler first and then pushing everything into place with no luck there either.

I don't want to start sanding down parts of the stock. Any advice?
