1960's sonor drum lug rods and lugs.

hi..recently pulled an old Sonor Satin Flame kit out
of storage; but having a difficult time with some of
the lug rods threading the lugs..this kit is from the 1960's..I've tried a few different things; and different angles; without much success...i'd say 80 percent of the Bass Drum rods went in fine..but..the
rest just don't seem to want to go...i have 2 on a matching snare that are the same..any suggestions?
thanks, Steve

It is difficult to offer advice without being able to see the drum. Here is the contact page for the Sonor company. Maybe they can help:
