Use your head, yes some parts need a little reworking, some maybe more than that but at least they are reasonable priced and widely available.
Don't want to step on anyone's toes, but I just wanted to let everybody know that the screw was too long and could cause this problem. That is all. I bought the screw because my old one was not satisfactory; trust me, whenever an original part is useable, I use it.
