That should be OK. When you insert it into the housing, if you twist it around it should drop in fully. You should know when you get it: it will make a big difference in depth and you should be able to feel more resistance when you turn the gear by hand.

OK, as long as you had the correct installed position (rotated so the proper number stamped on the sender unit is aligned with the dot) then we now know it is an electrical problem.

Check the voltage on the wires at the speedometer wires on the transfer case. Make sure the ORG wire is hot when the key is on, and the BLK wire is grounded. Those are the easiest two to check.

I think as long as the bracket goes into the notch, you are good to go.

That was just the easiest thing to check for, Better move on to looking for electrical causes now.
