some more pics of the locking pins and location of the grub screws:








It's best to drill the 2mm hole for the locking pin with the block installed to the scissor link. So through the bottom part and the block, do use a drill press for accuracy. exact location of the hole is not critical, as long as it goes through the block of course.

Thanks for the reply. I appreciate your answer.

Did you take the wheel off first? Seems like a pressure fit bearing that is pretty tight on the wheel shaft. Please describe your process if you don't mind. thx.

I figured out how to do it. The wheel comes off easily, the bearing wasn't terribly tight.
