    I recently ordered a medium Mohr bobcat jawset. Numbers on the top and bottom jaw read JNT007 & JBT007. The tongue reads MED Bobcat. I have tried test fitting this jawset multiple times and the tongue seems too big/wide in the back to fit flush down into the jawset. The "wings" on the back of the tongue are so wide the tongue sits real high with a large gap between the bottom of the tongue and the floor of the jawset. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

    Its like trying to put a square peg into a round hole.. it just dont wont fit any way you put it
     

  3. Wrong tongue, YOu may be able to heat it in very hot water and change the shape and make it fit. Also take a piece of 1/8 inch hardware cloth cut to shape and use 2 part epoxy to cover the screen. and texture with a stiff bristle artist brush until you get the texture, look in the mirror for reference while sticking your tongue out.
