Auger gearbox rebuild - new flanged bushing doesn't fit?

I bought a handful of replacement parts from Jack's awhile back and just found that one of my flanged bushings does not fit in the gearbox.
I've triple checked the part number in the manual vs what I received and I can't figure out where I went wrong?

Are you sure you ordered the correct part number for your machine? Sometimes there will be subtle changes during a model run and the serial number is needed to get the correct item.

It's also possible the part was mismarked at their end. I've ordered from Jack's quite a bit and generally had good luck but I did get a mismarked part once. In my case it was much more obvious because I'd ordered a cover plate for a snowblower and received a bracket for a lawnmower! But mistakes can happen... if you're sure you have the partnumber right, call Jack's and see if they can send you out another part.

~1994 Ariens 924084 (ST1032) "papa bear": restored, re-engined, real nice!
1991 Ariens 924050 (ST824) "mama bear"
Toro PowerCurve 1800 "baby bear"

Be alert! America needs more lerts.

No, I am not sure of anything. That being said, both the hardcopy of my manual and Jack's part finder indicate I have the right one. The only answer can be that I have a slightly different model gearbox then I think I do OR they sent me the wrong part. I emailed Jack's support tonight, I'll follow up with a call in a day or two if I don't hear back.

I have the serial number of my sno-thro attachment, how do I look up more accurate part information using serial number?

I assume you are referring to my second picture with the flat part of the bushing facing up? Doesn't matter, the flange is too wide to slide into its proper position.

If you can't solve this, I can machine the one you got to fit or just make you a new one to fit.

Let me know.

Sadly I can not do this, the original was misplaced(?) between the time of disassemble and now.

A couple have suggested I do not have it oriented correctly, spin the bushing on either half of the casing and the collar is still not fitting. Hopefully this is a clearer indication of the problem the collar is simply two wide to fit in the notch and will not seat all the way in the slot.

You can see the bushing on the far (bottom) side fits like a glove.

I'd email both photos to Jack's, tell them you think they sent the wrong part, and see what they say.

Is it me, or does that look like the bushing that goes in the side of the housing (where the auger shaft runs)?
