sun enterprise 420r card slot troubles

    I purchased a new (to me) enterprise 420r box and I'm having trouble
    with the card slots.. I just can't quite get the cards in all the way
    and so the card edges won't screw down completely (1-2mm-ish
    perhaps?)- and it was bugging me until I noticed on bootup my 420r
    says it's an ultra 80. I am aware that the motherboards are
    'identical' to ultra 80 motherboards (and 220r's are ultra 60), but
    are they really? So two questions 1) does the fact my motherboard came
    from an ultra 80 have anything to do with the cards not fitting and 2)
    can I change the product id string?

    Lastly, related to #1, if I take everything out completely and try to
    reposition the board within the limits of the mounting holes, might
    that resolve the problem?
