One of my Fire lift ramps will not stay up high enough. The ball catches rolling downward. I suspected the "lift crank assembly" and replaced it. You can see the working, "original" on the left, the new Marco on the right. I think that right crank is not correct as it will not "lock" in a more vertical position. Any comments. I am also not able to find any other vendors for the part number listed in both Marco and in the Fire Manual A-11137 thanks in advance

Using your picture - black line looks like the hook thingy on the right side above the coil is kind of straight while the one on the left is bent up a bit.

The brown arrow points to the nose you can bend up or down so the plate the coil pulls is closer or farther away.

Coils look like different heights too.

I have solved the problem but do not know how long the fix will continue to stay. I used JB Weld and filled in the low spots on the release coil latch and where it stops in the lever. Fractions of an inch adjustment there equals more than you can imagine at the end of the lever. Hope it holds
