Default 71 LeMans rear window diagram / help

I just repaced the outer window channel trim and some other rubber on my 71 Lemans Convertible. I'm trying to get the windows lined up so they seat correctly with each other and the top. Got the passenger side without too much hassle but the driver rear is giving me a fit. The chrome pc that attaches to the rear window and forms the seal with the front window hits the body / front of the window housing when I roll the window down. Thought maybe the window wasn't seated correctly but I can't find a diagram in my manual that shows how the window mounts to the actuator. Does anyone have a pic/diagram of how that assembly is put together?

I can probably trim some of the chrome pc at the bottom of the window so it is shorter and that may take care of it, but I hate to cut it and then find out that there was an adjustment or something I didn't know about. Also having trouble getting the chrome to seal tightly to the rear window but I can probably use silicone adhesive or something to get it to stick a little better. I'm open to suggestions on that part too. I didn't have to change this pc on the passenger side.
