Bumping this thread, just to provde my solution to the problem which may help others.

Basically bought three 1/2" washers to add some distance between the hook/tube and the bottom of the tripod in order to push the screw down into the tripod. This enables the head to connect to the top of the tripod

By the way i glued the washers together with some silicon adhesive

See below.

This is the before shot of the problem where yuo see the thread/nut above the top of the tripod

This is the 3 washers now placed through the hook tube but large enough to sit on the bottom of the tripod

The thread screw/nut is now sitting inside the tripod enabling the head to connect to the top of the tripod
