Default 144 Mhz Cubical quad SSB end

I'm back on it again a year later! Hoping to get this aerial working for some SSB operation on a lift, there have been some reports of some very good VHF propagations during this hot weather.
However following a design page where the frequency is typed in and you magically get the correct dimensions and spacing it flopped dramatically. I adjusted the driven element so it is now 70mm longer in total length and re-spaced the gamma match, it now appears to work well but i'm not sure about adding a tuning stub to the reflector or how this thing should be adjusted as a procedure ie steps 1 2 3 etc .
So are there any VHF gurus out there who have cubical quad experience?
