power antenna replacement

So I replaced the mast and the new one is working great but I just noticed the tip of the mast recesses into the main shaft by about a half inch. Is that correct, shouldn't it be flush and seal at the top? I bought a knockoff replacement not an OEM so maybe that is the problem?

Thanks
Ron

It should be flush. That said, if it's a cheap replacement....and it's actually working, just go with it. I've tried the cheap replacements twice now....and both have broken within a month. The more you mess with them, the faster they break.


PS. I got the fogs today!

That's what I thought, I'll have to try an OEM mast, once winter gets here that will just freeze up and cause all kinds of problems.

Thanks,
Ron

Great! I'm glad they arrived already.

Well, I picked them up off my front porch as I was headed out the door to work. I might try to mount them tomorrow if I have time. And pics will follow. ;)
