About the only trouble people have with the Old School is snapping in the e-clips, onto the king pins.
Do the top e-clip (under the spring) 1st. A nice pair of small needle nose helps a ton.
To install the bottom e-clip, just slide it underneath the steering block (in between block and arm), and use the back side of your hobby knife to push it on to the king pin.
It's really pretty easy once you get the technique down.
Also, check the steering blocks for any flashing.
