Forward Controls Install Issues

Trying to install this kit on my 1986 Intruder VS750
Instructions that came with are vague with the pictures showing it on a slightly different model and not in English so i am figuring it out as I go.

I know where everything goes but when I connect the rocker piece and push rod for the foot brake to the new foot lever it pushes the brake cam the wrong way. I have tried flipping the rocker piece upside down and changing the push rod position but it only makes it worse. When it's all assembled to the original foot saddle on the floor it works great but when it is bolted back on to the bike and becomes rigid the angle of the push rod changed slightly and the rocker tries to move the other way.

will be posting pictures soon.
spent a lot of money on this and I really need it to work!

Perhaps try lengthening or shortening the adjustments on the heim joints.
OR (from the top of their page) "If you cannot find what you are looking for please call 01773835666 or email sales@customcruisers.com"

I have also tried flipping the rocker piece over, that made it worse, also tried switching the foot rest/lever from the other side (makes the mounting hole for the push rod go on the top) this made it worse as well, tried every combination I can think of
