I found out the hard way that the factory will use mismatched parts. If they got the wrong cylinder or a piston rod too long they'll just add gaskets to keep the piston from hitting the head. ALL they care about is getting yer money out of your account. EVERYTHING ELSE is YOUR problem. And yeah, ya gotta inspect everything.
