                    Try this if you can- tie a rope or clothesline from one leg 
to the other across the bus, so that you have 3 ropes, each going across from 
one leg of the rack to the other. 
                    Then, using some sort of rods or dowels, slowly twist each 
rope like a tourniquet, pulling the legs closer together little by little, 
until it bows up in the middle and fits in the drip rails. 
                    Try to go evenly, just a few turns on each rope, and 
watch/listen closely for any signs heavy stress.

                    I had seen that, but the way I read it is that it should 
fit a bay if it is made for a bay or a split.

                    The rack that I have is on one side in the drip rail and 
the other side is out about an inch. It also seems to hit the roof. It is a 1/2 
rack, has 3 legs on each side. 

                    I am wondering if maybe it had heavy stuff on it and it 
stretched.

                    It is in amazing condition. The clamps still has the rubber 
coating, the metal is still bright, it has the plugs at the ends of the open 
pipes, It has the blue decal with the part number.

                    So it was not used much. It came out of the rafters in a 
barn in Waco.

                          OK. went and picked up an all metal bus roof rack 
today. 

                          Thought I would use it on my Bay.....well it is too 
wide.

                          Are splities wider than bays on the roof?
