Default Springer install issues...bottom crown race?

Just got my Sun Springer fork w/canti's today. I'm having a few issues with it on my Cranny. First, and most stumping is the bottom crown race...there isn't one. Second, is the alignment of the spring headtube brace with the spring bolt. This would be an easy fix with a spacer. The bottom race has me stumped. Is there a solution that I can do in my modest shop? Or will I need to find a way to have one pressed on?

Also, I may have screwed up the first threads on the bolt. Hopefully, not the brace. I knew it didn't feel right, so I backed off. Gonna try to chase the bolt with a grade 8 nut and see if it fixes it. Doesn't look bad. Just hope the brace is ok. So dumb...and pissed.
