Me Super Stuck Mirror, Bottom Opened, Need Help with Reassembly

Apologies in advance if I am not using the correct terminology. I recently bought my very first 35mm film camera off eBay and running into a few fllm advance, stuck mirror, and re-assembly issues. I watched "Fix Old Cameras: Pentax ME-Super Winding Issues" on YouTube to open up my Me Super. I was able to get the mirror to drop but I am having issues with winding the film advance now. There is a winder catch that is in the way. See photo below. The photo shows the armature removed. Placing it back doesn't seem to clear the winder catcher out of the way. Any help is appreciated!

I could be wrong but I believe that lever moves when you depress the shutter button and I believe if you look back towards the back of the camera what are the gears are you'll see something moving there as well I believe is part of the mirror mechanism or shutter release

Yeah, I thought I was going to repair cameras after watching that video. One ME Super that would go back together and I started doing business with Eric Henderson.
