    Now check you have that little dog leg on the op-rod catch in the right place by pushing on the clip release and up on the op-rod catch. Everything should be springy-sproingy with no binding.

    I am falling behind (and apart)here.
    The op-rod/spring/rod is now next in line.

    Make sure it is in spec. The little piston on the end should measure .525 minimum and be round, sharp edges and no chips.

    Grease the op-rod track in the receiver the lug on the bolt and/or the machined area that they all fit together at.

    Gently install the piston end into the gas cylinder.

    It may take some wiggling about but get the op-rod to flip over into its basic position. Do not force anything as you do not want to bend the op-rod other than what bends are already there..

    get the right side bolt lug into the milled part of the op-rod handle and then slide it back until the little tab on the op-rod handle drops into the small cut out on the receiver groove.

    should now slide back and forth. I usually do not bother with any 'tilt test' as long as nothing feels like it is binding at this point. Not touching the stock anywhere or the lower band. The op-rod spring is next. grease well and slide it into the op-rod. Notice that one end is taper wound and the other is not. The large end goes in the op-rod and the tapered end gets the follower rod attached to it. (just push in tight)

    The follower rod forks fit into the lugs on the follower arm. make sure the follower rod is in the right position (look at photo). I will use pliers or such as my grip is not great.

    bit of grease where the match up and done. the follower arm may have to be lightly pried up so that both parts click into place.

    ..and the upper is almost done. looking for a great rear sight to finish it off.

    If there appears to be to much grease in places just wipe any excess off now. Just a quick wipe.

    Man, but you are a bad influence! I've placed an order for a kit from Aztec Armory.

    But seriously...thanks for sharing this. This is going to be of immense help when I start into mine.

    My son keeps telling me "make yutube videos''. Seems kinda pointless as there are hundreds out there already and I would have to spend cash on a decent camera instead of more parts.
