I have a question about touch hole alignment, been searching and can't seem to get a firm answer. I just picked up a GPR flintlock and the touch hole liner is not centered in the pan, the  height seems fine as it roughly lines up with the top of the pan but sits back from center a little.  Best I can describe it is the hole is a little less than halfway between the bottom of the pan and the back of the pan. Is alignment critical for this or is there a little room for error? I know pics would help but I can't seem to make them work. Appreciate any opinions. I'll work on pics.  Thanks!

Theres room for error. The pan powder is spread out across a large area, so it will make it to the vent hole no matter. I think vent hole height is far more important.
