read the instructions thoroughly twice on the reload kit. you should be fine if you follow them. always keep grease handy, however, be careful when handling the delay grain with greasy hands, make sure you dont smear any on the grain, because then there's a possibility that your rocket becomes a lawn dart...which is no fun. 24/40 is a sweet case, i'll be purchasing one next week myself. HAVE FUN!!!
When you are set to assemble a reload you may want to do this.
Take out all O-rings, grease them and set them aside
With remaining grease-like the stuff still on your fingers, grease the threads of the closures.
Clean you hands thoughoughly.
Locate and assemble the delay grain in it's insulator.
Then follow all the instructions, grease will not be a factor when installing the delay grain into the closure as greasing was done ahead of time. It may take once to familarize yourself with all the parts, but after you do it's a cinch.
Another recommendation, if you're sure the weather is gonna be nice, assemble the motor at home. Assembly on a windy day on a flat table can be a lesson in patience and result in a loss of O-rings.

Great Videos! thanks! I was just looking around at some diagrams and all the ones I found were side ones (naturally). What would be cool is if there was a reference like -> aft closure then a full front picture of the aft closure and a picture of each part. Just a thought. It's not hard to figure out but I like to get into the details as much as possible and like to be sure I'm useing the right part.
