Default M05 ball diff does not fit!!!

I just assembled the new ball diff for the tamiya M05 and tried to put the car back together and the universal shaft (53597) does not fit. It fits the slots but will not go deep enough without hitting the plastic that holds the lock nut.

HELP?!

reverse the whole diff screw assembly.
Look really close at the pic in the instructons to see the correct orientation, as the outdrives are NOT symmetrical.

I think the instructions are missleading.

Thanks for the input. That helped.
