Need help on inventor

I have little experience with inventor and need some help with a certain problem. I am construcing a skateboard truck and would like to know how to change the angle of the circle face in the first picture to be at the same angle of the face in the second picture. The highlighted areas have been coloured gold.  I have attached the ipt file below.

I notice that your Sketch1 is not constrained.

I recommend you read this

http://home.pct.edu/~jmather/SkillsUSA%20University.pdf

 

Beginners should almost never use Delete Face -

you have a solid body and a surface body.

 

I recommend you start over using what you learned from the first attempt to simplify the second attempt (should be able to cut the number of features in half and don't use Delete Face.

 

Attach here at any step where you have difficulty in the new attempt.

Well I wouldn't mark as a solution until you get the final results.
