Hi everyone, I just bought a brand new steering column from Minispares to replace the old knackered one on my 1990 Mayfair. But, it looks to me like the steering lock groove is on the wrong side on this new one. Could someone confirm this?

According to my car (the old column), and the Haynes manual, when the wheels are straight the clamp at the bottom of the column should be underneath, which is where the groove on the rack splines is currently. This would put my steering lock groove on the right where it should be - but this new column seems to be back to front. I can see the bottom clamp part is welded on separately to the column so it there a chance someone has put it together back to front?
