Ok, so what's next FED-2 shutter reassembly

Advice needed, please! I'm having a hard time figuring out how to put the shutter back together. It was easy enough getting this far and getting everything clean & lubed!

But now…*What alignments are most critical, what order to tighten the drum, 1st curtain roller, 2nd curtain roller?

I'm here now:

Brief history: This camera was suffering from shutter issues –*approx. 4 out of 10 shots, the curtains would pass by very quickly without exposing the film at all. This was happening on all speeds, including bulb.

I took the shutter apart for cleaning, following Stephen Castello's instructions.
