Creality 3D Ender-4, a "extruder kit" does not fit the frame
This is my first time building a 3D printer (a "Creality Ender-4").
Everything is going fine except the "extruder kit" part that does not have enough space to attach on the frame. Should I drill it to have a longer hole so it can be attached to the frame? I just want another set of eyes to look at it to make sure I'm not crazy.
I submitted an edit that fixes the images
Try loosening all the screws that hold the motor/filament feeder to the bracket. There may be enough slop to skooch it over a bit and get it to fit.

Dude, you're absolutely not crazy, I almost put the entire thing back in the box when I realized I'd have to void the warranty just to finish putting together my printer but I wound up boring out the holes a bit closer to the edges of the extruder and assembling it all the same, it works wonderfully now that I have it attached.
Yep, I ended up drilling the holes, and I've been printing successfully since then.

It looks like the body of the stepper motor may not be quite square. Would you be able to install it rotated 90 degrees and get the clearance you need?
