Others are much better qualified to answer you than I am. That said, are the two halves level to each other? Perhaps easiest check is to observe your space. Is it equal top to bottom. Must be or it will not slide together. On my 860 I had not pulled the PTO shifter which caused me the opposite problem. Must be level and in line side to side.
