QUOTE (A Anderson @ 7 Jul 2016, 02:00) <{POST_SNAPBACK}> seeking guidance on the best method...
There isn't a single 'best method' in my opinion. There is so much variation in both prototype configuration and model construction that a variety of methods have to be employed.

The NEM pocket route is probably simplest where there is adequate space.
Temporarily screwing on a draft box to assess the correct packing for gauge height, before finalising with a screwed and cemented assembly, where space is somewhat constricted.
Extremely fiddly modification to the coupler and mounting where there is 'no space at all', on such as Lowmacs, some bogie freight vehicles and loco tenders.

Start on the more straightforward and work up to the awkward squad...
