    I haven't touched the new units but I try to compare an older used one that was with the printer (that is dated before 2016) with the new unopened black drum and can't spot any difference of the old black with the new black.
    (yet the new unit can't sit right and I get that gradient printing).

    The differences aren't visible in your picture. If you are trying to use a black drum in place of a color drum, then the black end piece needs to be swapped between the new black drum and the old color drum. Depending on when that black drum was made, you may also need to swap the small black piece that is still on the metal drum shaft in your picture. One last thing that needs to come off is a small plastic piece attached to the right side of the drum assembly, 3/4 of the way down the body of the drum towards the rear side.

    The differences between the color and black drums (besides the chip itself) are:
    1) The piece of plastic that is held in place by the 2 screws on the black drum end cap in your picture. That piece is a spacer the affects the gap between the drum and dev unit. The black drums have a raised tab on that piece, where the color drums are flat.
    2) The plastic piece attached to the right side of the drum assembly.

    Thank you very much for the clarification.
    My man sent me the drums without this modification (only the chip change) and I didn't want to sent them another trip back and forth because couriers are savages and those are delicate parts.
    He told me by phone what to do but having a clear picture of what I'm looking for helps a ton.
