    It looks like you did not bend the tabs the correct way on one of the pans. A simple cure is to rebend the tabs onn one of the pans to make a left side pan... you bent two right (passenger side) pans. Flip one of them over and rebend............ Hope that helps.........

    I didn't bend them, I bought them as they are. I did think about bending them the other way, but I can see stress marks on the bends already. The tabs will break off if bend them 180 degrees the other way.

    I guess my sense of humor is a bit dry at times.

    Please send Jerry an e-mail or contact him via the phone and he will take care of it.

    It is a shame that people make mistakes.

    Cut the tabs off. .Mount the front axle to the center section.

    Looks like a simple problem of accidentally packaging 2 right pans.

    I'm sure that if you contact Jerry Kulich at JK Products that he will exchange or send you out a new left pan.

    I think if you scroll up... that option was already kinda ruled out.

    Unless you were meaning to run it with one axle support sticking down.

    Either way... I think you swung the bat a tad late on this one, Zip!
