front brake sleeve nut.

what kind of tight does the nut on the brake sleeve need? if much torque is required what can be used to hold the slotted end inside the side-cover. also in clymers(mea culppa) he states the brake stud should have a tight fit thru the bushing in the side-cover mine is way loose and the bushing looks like it would be very difficult to deal with unless it is possible to press a bushing inside the existing. when put together with the leg it seems like it would be alright. i had aheck of atime getting that brake pin stud free .including driving plastic tent pegs between the side-plate and the leg finally after reading previous post about possibleor probable rust(mksbeem i think) i used a little more force. thanks chuck
