Either it fits like a glove or its broken and your putting it in wrong. You shouldnt have any problems putting it together. Tools can be an issue. But they can also be borrowed.
Be sure to get the cam timed right.
Everything should be a light tap in and covered with assembly lube. A little oil can go a lomg way as well. Also be sre to fill the filter with oil so it gets oil as soon as it starts.
At some point all builds run out of money and you have to beg borrow or steal to get it finished. Best to start being cheap early. Lol
