Good to hear you could do it.
I see two reasons for the C-drive to be lower by 6 mm:
-the big sleeve has collapsed a little bit when the whole weight of the C-drive was standing on it.
-the new mounts (although with same specs) are stiffer than the old ones and don't go down so much with the weight of the whole system.
Both reasons act together.
As a last setting, and in order to prevent unnecesary stress on the shaft/coupling, I would now just release the pair of bottom hose clamps on the big sleeve, see if it is moving and then tighten again.
During this short operation, you will see some water coming in but probably not more than when you're having a shower...
Tell me if the sleeve moves (mark the gel-coat before opening the clamps).
