During installation of your fuel valve in the center console, it is possible that you will find that the P/N 81527.000 Bushings that stand-off the valve from the console face are too long.  This creates a problem with the mounting hardware, and the valve selector shaft handle possibly making contact with the screw heads above the panel.

The fix for this is to trim the bushings to an overall length of 1/2", to allow the valve body to sit a little closer to the console.  This can be done with a file by hand, on a grinding wheel, or by chucking the bushing into a drill press and holding a hacksaw against the turning bushing.
