AFG replacement electrodes look too short

paulmars Member Posts: 87
I bought replacement electrodes for my AFG burner and they appear too short. I took both the old and replacement electrodes apart to see if I could use some of the old pieces to make the replacement electrodes longer, but I could not. I asked the supplier and they say they have been supplying these for years and never hard this before. What an I doing wrong?

Before Im told that home novice user should never do this, i did do it once before years ago. I replace these, the nozzle, the strainer, filter, clean out the chamber, replace the gaskets, get it running so it looks about right, then I pay for someone with the gauges and know how to make sure it is running right.

I have pics.

the gasket looks different too.

    All Beckett electrodes I get come with a couplings, locking nuts and theaded bus bars you cut to length.
    Are they in Beckett packaging?
