Problem with DXF import

I am having a problem with importing a DXF file in regard to scale/size/dimensions. Not sure how to describe it. The drawing opens fine, but if I add a new dimension it clearly has no relation to the existing dimensions or actual dimensions of the part.

I know I am missing something !!

Can you please post or email me the drawing?

Check the space units of the drawing.  Units are not described in the DXF format so you may be working in " while the rest of the drawing is in mm or something like that.
