Coupler Assembly

 

Here are the #38 components
First assemble the spring
Use a nail or a tweesers and holding the spring with your thumb move the edges of the spring to the side holes

Place the lid to prevent the spring to jump.

Place the knucle and cover it with the other lid. You can choose if the knucle will be upwards or downwards. It causes the coupler to be higher or lower when it is finally mounted on the truck
A closer look

Use some crazy glue but BE CARFULL not tu use a lot. I had to throw away 3 kits because of the glue. Just put a little bit on the edges (both sides)

Turn the coupler upside down and place some more drops of crazy glue.
This is how it looks when finnished
