Default Fuel pump doesn't fit

I am replacing my stock fuel pump in my 1991 Miata with a Walbro 190lph pump but the new pump is larger than the old. Has anyone else had this problem? Does a 94-97 pump assembly work in a 91?

That was what I was thinking but I always need feed back. Thank you for saving me more money! It will be able to go somewhere else in the car.

No I was about to by a fuel pump assembly from a 94-97 but it looks like that will not fit the tank anyway.

1.8 tank is taller so the 1.8L assembly will probably foul the bottom of the 1.6L tank.
