> There have been several well thought out possible solutions to my question

> on God's little green earth I am gg to push, pry, shove, twist or

> cannot be done from my perspective!  I wonder if MFJ did a re-design on

> The bottom of the rotor is stamped- Ham 4 2005- exactly.  Or maybe the 
> tower I have is a really old model and the bracing on the newer models is 
> placed differently such that a Ham 4 will fit...who knows?...probably only 
> the Shadow...
> I don't have a big enough set of calipers to accurately measure the max

> end to do that.
> This is a puzzle I really wud like to find the answer to...any help?
