Been a while since I built one of these or some K & Rs or Westerns
but with all white metal kits they take a bit of "fettling" and trial fitting to get really correct. Have a set of small files on hand and a pin vice for small drill bits to open out the holes for axles, handles and other fittings. I enjoy the challenge of building these. Don't be afraid of "improving" it to suit your eye.
