    How about the aperture index? It should be at top dead center on the lens.
    In any case, if it's mis-aligned the solution is going to be basically to force it back into alignment
    & hope you don't f**k up the linkage in the body when you do it.
    That's righty-tighty, lefty-loosey.
    For what it's worth, neither the lens or the body can be dis-assembled with the lens mounted.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    when looking at the camera-the aperture index and the mount index will go as far as 1-2 o'clock. they will turn right to about 3 o'clock and that is it.

    Very careful, precise work is required. With a big fookin' pipe wrench.

    You can always take a hacksaw to the lens--chew it off at the base, taking great care not to saw into the camera body--yeesh!

    My best advice is still to use a professional repairer but you seem pretty determined to diy so...
    The shutter will probably still fire.
    Use a cable release, open the shutter on "B" and leave it open.
    Open the camera back and look at the back of the lens.
    The levers you can see at the left hand side (and at the bottom if you have a tiny inspection mirror) are likely the problem if you've mounted a lens wrongly.
    Obviously while any object is in its way the shutter MUST NOT CLOSE!!
    If you can't then tell what needs to be done try to post a picture showing the levers and the back of the lens.

    How 'bout posting some pics of the whole procedure, and the aftermath. I'm sure everyone would like to see the carnage.
