Walbro pump doesnt match up with old one

does anyone know a good reason why the walbro replacement HP fuel pump for a GN would be a full 3/4' shorter than the stock pump coming out of the tank?
I have it all apart and it was going smoothly enough when I removed the old pump from the bracket and tried to test fit the new pump with a little dismay....when its resting on the bottom of the bracket it doesnt even come close to the fuel outlet at the top.
I would think that the new pump would go in the way the old one came out and have the same over all dimension's......I'm stumped.

thanks turbo guru's,

Use a portion of rubber fuel line to extend to the fuel outlet.

I have done several this way. In fact Racetronix supplied the fuel hose to do so if I remember correctly.

Which type of pump kit did you purchase?
Perhaps we can send you an instruction sheet.
Note: Remove the pulsator and replace it with a length of the supplied rubber hose.
