I think you may have the wrong lifting handle.
Looking at Drags lists: this one (see below) has the combined lifting handle AND welded on mudguard bracket, part no 5591-34. This is NOT
the correct one for a WNG / the rigid mudguards with the hinged rear section. Is this the one you have ??
The one for the WNG and other singles with the hinged lifting rear section 1935-49 is a shown below. This is the one shown on Simons WNG and my WNG shown in primer. (This one also has the small bracket on the left side 'centre' stay for the chainguard to bolt to).
Does this help?
