im confused......can someone help?

recently i replace my tired mtx75 in my 01 zx3. the newer one had 150k less on it. one reason i replaced the trans was not only the loss of 3rd gear synchro but the turret its self developed alot of play making shifts harder and harder. the new trans turret was totally different but came out of a focus with the zetec so it bolted right up. my problem is the newer turret doesnt work on the trans in the car right now because of it hitting the upper trans mount. the older ones counter weight isnt bolted to the turret but actually laterally moves a shuttle on the turret for the gear change unlike the newer on where the counter weight bolts right to the turret shaft/ the play is actually from that little shuttle pin that connects the weight to the turret. can i mod the new turret or can i get a newer older version i cant see it possible to fix the older one. if anyone can help please please please write back
