Make sure you tighten those bolts down just a couple of turn at a time, each doing it in a crosswise fashion so the the springs are pulled down evenly. You won't believe how easy it is to break the pressure release plate, until you do it! (As many have done!)
'Impossible' is just a level of difficulty! The only stupid question is the one you didn't ask first!

( Seriously, you haven't read all 115 pages of my website ?? :shock: )
