That's more or less how I started minus the ratchet strap. The front & outside holes would line while the inside would be out of position. It's like one of the flanges is rotated just enough to make it a PITA. According to RN's instruction sheet, the two center bolt holes are the proper distance apart and the other two are about 1/4'' short causing a rotation off axis that cannot be forced into place. I'll measure my old NRP just to confirm tomorrow.
