I'm having an issue with my Pieta 1851 Navy that I've had a few months now and after a total tear down to clean it up I cannot get the wedge into place, as it is pushed to the side and seems is caught on a lip because the height of the port is not aligned correctly. Not sure if I'm looking at needing a new part or just filing something down etc.
I appreciate any help I can get :)

Thanks for the pictures. That explained a lot. First, you are putting it in on the wrong side. The wedge is inserted from the side with the screw in it. Loosen the screw, insert the wedge with the flat spring up. A properly tuned wedge should be able to press in finger tight. Then tighten the screw. The screw is there to keep the wedge from falling out.
