Sm420 question

The greatest teacher failure is.
Comparing my '50 and my '62 sm420's and I have a possible issue with the 62. I have a video of what I am facing.

The '50 does a similar thing but the movement is very, very small compared to the 62.

One more question: are the top gear shifter covers interchangeable? They look exactly the same, but I wonder if the forks that run down into the case are the exact same between a '50 and a '62. The reason I ask is because I would like to use the '50 cover on the 62 so I can still use the ebrake lever in the cab near the gear shift as its pivot is on the cover.

Thanks for the advice.
