Tweak-EPUB just Explodes and re-assembles.
You have to to the rest of the damage (or not)
be sure to use a TEXT editor like Notepad(++) and not a Word processor, that might insert incorrect stuff into the file.
The current Sigil (2.x) has the nasty habit of destroying the current NCX and re-building it from headers, which may not work for your source.
