i just got a scotts damper and putting it on my 426...i'm having issues with the mount on the frame that clamps to the oil filler tube in front seems like the clamp is too big...anybody with pics of the mount...should i have some shims or something...everything else went on smoothly. Thanks.

The mount never used to clamp to the filler tube, only the steering head. I'm not familiar with the setup you're talking about.

this is what i ended up with. when the damper is on a slow setting, the frame mount wiggles.
