Is it possible to augment a crook by adding 1/2" more length to the cork end and then cork over it?

My curiosity is peaked since one alto I play plays in tune with about 1/2" of the cork remaining and another alto is pushed in all the way.

Looking the two necks side by side one crook is 1/4 to 1/2" shorter.

I will probably just push mouthpiece in which works perfectly but was curious as to your thoughts?

It can be done, but shouldn't be necessary. Are your crooks of the same type/ model? Is it the crook that is shorter or just the cork on it?
There is usually 35mm or so of cork on an alto.
The amount of cork sticking out isn't that significant.

I asked more out of curiosity than anything. To answer your question they are two different horns.
