Thanks for the reference. I am in a similar situation where I need to set up my Space Deck. Right now a Rega 25 sounds better.

That's unusual. Why didn't the cartridge align? Are you sure it was because of this that the channels were not even?
I am about to unpack my Spacedeck/Spacearm too and put Goldring 1042 in the arm. But I will probably have a dealer set it all up.
Many think that Feickner protractor works very well, though I haven't heard from Nott. owners about it. It's quite expensive - $259 but might be worth it.
I am using a Shelter 501 MKII MC cartridge that tracks different from an MM cartridge. I had to max out the little weight on the end of the arm to get it right. I have read that you can add a second weight, but not sure where to get one now days.
I set the bias/anti-skate by setting the cartridge on the NAS dust-cover while spinning. The dust cover is basically a record without groves. The cartridge is supposed to remain in place without tracking in or out, when the weight is correct.
