Default 87 TPS question feeling stupid

Past feeling stupid changed tps and I can't get it to stop impeading the throttel . The retainer on the tps is rubbing on the screw .


This is the orgionsl tps a different throttle body. Have been using another tps for 6 months the same style . Do I need a different tps for this throttle body?

Was curious as to any performance improvement you may have seen with the Throttle body change. Was it worth it?
