No Dumb Questions?

Fellow Collectors/Restorers,
They say there are no dumb questions but maybe mine will qualify.  I  freely 
admit my ignorance and come to the experts for help.
Would like to align an NC-121 receiver.  I've done one alignment  before and 
made out pretty well considering my lack of experience.  In that  case the 
directions as to where to connect the signal generator and VTVM were  very 
specific and easy to follow.  In the case of the NC-121 the  instructions for IF 
alignment include "connecting the high side of the generator  directly to the 
mixer section of the tuning gang."  Does this mean the  stator, the rotor or 
something other?
My second question has to do with getting a Hallicrafters SX-62A out of its  
cabinet.  The Pointer Reset Knob must first be removed.  None of my  hex keys 
fit the screw.  It's somewhere in size between .050 and  1/16."  Someone on 
eBay is selling a set of Bristol spline wrenches which  supposedly includes the 
size needed to remove the screw in question.   Before I make a bid, any advice 
on how to proceed.  The radio is in very  good cosmetic condition and 
receives great on all bands but the controls do  need cleaning and lubricating and 
the dial cord needs replacing.
Thanks in advance for any and all help.
73, Alan - KB2HEI
