DeoreXT disc brake held needed for manitou fork

Dear crew.

I have the Manitou Axel 2003 on my bike. I got the XT disc brake set as said in previous postings. In the begining i had the 160mm disc rotor for the front and it was to small to reach the caliper in diameter given that i had a manitou adaptor. I ordered a 170mm XT rotor as adviced by shimano since installation on manitou forks requires 170mm rotors. I finally got the 170mm rotor but again it comes short for about 5-6mm to the caliper. The LBS in Greece has (i suppose) wrongly supplied me the 160mm rotor for a manitou, and a FORMULA adaptor for the manitou fork. Is my problem the adaptor? the rotor?
Please guys help me. I live in the UK now so going to the Greek LBS to complain is not feasible. I just dont want to see my 400$ to go wasted.

Yannis
