Hi Ronald, you could always contact CS and ask for a replacement pack/stage 3 to be sent to you, (the pack/stage that contains the carronade). That way you would have the correct parts.

Unfortunately I don't have the width of the brass plate to hand but you do get a second carronade later in the build where you can take the dimensions from. Also, you may have messed up on the brass plate you received but you can still measure the width of it even though you can't use it... Cool Cool

As said, you can always get the measurements from the second carronade kit when received....
