Can\'t figure out how new steering shaft goes on

OK, I feel dumb. I can't see how the new Borgeson steering shaft goes onto the firewall side splines. It has a set screw that I turned back until the joint would slide onto the splines, but if I tighten the set screw down into the groove... there will only be about 1/4 inch of the joint that goes onto the splined shaft. In other words... If I leave the set screw backed off and then slide the joint all the way up in the direction of the firewall, the set screw does not go down into the groove.

Am I supposed to grind a new flat into the shaft splines for the set screw? Dang I wish I had a digital camera so I could take a picture. I don't know if I explained the problem clearly...
