The workshop manual seems to confirm your old pump as being correct - the
body vent and the recess in the plastic points cover should be on the
opposite side to the in and out lines. However I'm surprised that the tube
to the vent on the plastic cover won't fit either as I would have thought
that noit matter how it was rotated it was never going to be as much as 1"
away from any other position. It should be no problem removing the screws
and rotating the solenoid wrt the in and out lines.
