Cambo conversion help needed

I got the Cambo Ultima -> Actus upgrade kit (ACXL 365) and the GFX adapter (AC 795). Neither came with instructions. I couldn't find instructions on the Cambo website.

I think I see what to do with the upgrade kit. There are 3 holes near the top of the Ultima standards on the side. I’m guessing there are set screws in there. If I loosen the set screws, I can probably slide the old top pieces out and slide the new ones in, then re-tighten the set screws. Is that right? What tool do I use on the set screws? Are they hex head? What size? I sure don’t want to strip the heads on those things.

The next problem is the GFX adapter. There are two pieces; a G compatible rear standard and what looks like a riser block. I’m guessing the riser block goes under the top part of the front standard. But neither of those things looks like it connects with the other stuff.

Front standard holder (?)

Rear standard?

Riser block

GFX adapter. To what does this connect, and how?

The three holes. Set screws inside?
