handles to match holes in door.

A quick learner from Palm Harbor, Fl says:
I placed an order on 5/25/2013 . It was for two(2) part number # 82-055K.
When I went to replace the outside handle of the handle set, the outside handle holes did not line up. I was able to use the rest of the handle set and one of the sets worked just fine. So I just need one of the outside handles replaced with holes that line up properly.

Thank you,

Thank you for the pictures, Terry. These look pretty much the same just by eyeballing them. How do they differ, exactly? What is the distance between the screw hole centers for your original handle and what is it for the new handle?
A quick learner says:
They do not line up. Look at the two outer holes, the one at the top and the one at the bottom. The holes in the first handle are spaced longer than in the second handle.

Well, they are supposed to measure 3-1/2" on centers. What size is your original? I need to know exactly how they differ so that we can find the best possible replacement for you.
