kentjay, I believe you are correct. I think its just the way its repoped. The are pulled taunt over the rounded edge and still too short. I am not trying to do a perfect pump, so this side may get a chrome accent piece or something-- I know its wrong, but I dont want to redo and spend a fortune doing the pump, its a MOPAR accent for the MOPAR room.

The screwws with the springs attach the horse shoe piece to the back of the front face plate panel and there should be about 10 of those. The big round head slotted screwws attach the front face panel to the main frame. Ya need 8 of them. Ya got about 3 extra ones of those. If I remember right, there are 4 spring screws holding on the add glasses too. SOOOO, ya need about 18 of them screws with springs. Kent.

One last little tid bit here Dave. If you don't get that sheet metal top to fit just right, your site glasses will not fit thru the holes in the top sheet metal and the big nuts will not screw back on the site glasses. My opinion on your situation would be to get some arches that fit correctly. You certainly don't want to ruin the top by enlarging the holes for the site glasses. I am sure you can get some descent ones from someone on here? Kent.

I would try to grind off about 1/8 inch off the bottum of the arches.

By grinding off material on the bottom of the arches, you will change the hole position where the side sheet metal screws on. This will change the total hight of the arches but it won't change the hole position where the sheet metal top screws on. Kent.
