The factory may have modified the upper section since I got mine in
December '92, but I guarantee you the only way it would go in was to
put the mounting plate upside down.  Or maybe bend the cross braces,
which I was not about to do.

I sent a letter to the factory about it and they replied that they
would "look into it".  I never heard any more, but perhaps they did
make some kind of change.
