Ruger Security Six Reassembly

I disassembled my Security Six revolver to give it a good cleaning. Now that I am re-assembling it, there is a part that I am not sure where it goes:

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have a couple of you tube videos but I didn't see that part on there.

That's the cylinder stop. It pops up from the bottom of the frame and arrests the rotation of the cylinder.

In the second image, you are holding it upside down. The beveled edge goes up. The 90 turn goes forward (toward muzzle).

It's been years since I've disassembled mine. I think the hammer goes in first and then the cylinder stop. Then the trigger guard.

It is tensioned back and upward by a spring and plunger inside the lower axle of the crane, and cammed down by the front of the trigger in its first movement.
