    How about a picture of the NEW pieces also? Those two stems appear to be completely different.

    I can't give you a piccie of the new stems, as they are installed.
    Those two are exactly the same, but have come off differently.
    The top one still has the screw on section from the dome cover, the bottom one, the screw part from the dome, stayed in the dome.
