I was expecting the 'flanged' part of the upper tube to contact the face of the block when it's all the way in but that is not the case.
I've driven the lower tube as far as it goes but all I have room for is 1/2 for the upper tube.

Hope this makes sense.
Thanks!

Sure they are related if the lower is not there or messed up the upper will not seat correctly.........nuff said
