Autometer Gauge Question

I just finished installing a pillar 3 pod from Autometer (Christmas gift from my wonderful wife!) and I was wondering if anyone else has run into this problem. Both the pyro and boost gauges press fit into the pod nicely but the tranny gauge is too loose and will not stay seated in the lower pod. I have checked and made sure there was no interferance from any wiring. I do not want to mount the gauge permamently so I can pull it out to change bulbs if needed. Any one else had this problem and what was your solution?

My buddys truck did the same thing...we wraped the gauge with eletrical tape til it fit tight....use a thin strip so there is no heat issues depending on how lose on how much ...
Go aruond once with tape and try the fit if still lose repete till desired fit..
