Carb/Air Box fitment

Hey guys,

Trying to get all of this back together and so far it's a bit of a struggle. Put the new rubber carb joints in since my others were cracked, fit the carburetor in but it isn't sitting level. Bit tilted to the right. The carb joints are correct as I matched them up with the old ones. Now as I try to fit the air box in the carb is popping out of those joints. Is the air box supposed to sit a little above the frame or is something wrong?

Here are some pictures for reference.

Update.

Compared the old carb joints to the new ones, new ones are taller. Brought to my local shop where I bought them to make sure we ordered the correct ones and they are. The sales guy agreed with me that they are too tall so we re ordered them. Should be in by Friday. He also checked to make sure they didn't change size from factory. These guys also order straight from Japan. Grrrr.....
