i have a question about the drag manifold?

how do you get the nut above the dip srtick on the manifold?

I used a small open end wrench and just kept going back and forth. I was lucky to get an 1/8th turn at a time on it. It worked, though.

wow i can’t even get the nut to fit in there… i tried sliding the manifold to the end and getting the nut in there and that didn’t work … what a pain
