Water pump help

Well.....bought new water pump from Centerline for my 89 Grad. Followed Water Pump for Dummies post. Got everything back together. Feeling pretty good.....then notice fan blades were catching AC pulley. Yikes.....appears new water pump about half inch shorter from pulley to end of pump. I didn't see water pump for ac on Centerline so thought I had right one. I assume I need different pump? Anyway to use spacers on pump I installed? Am I missing something?
Thank you for your help.

Check to see if the old pump has a fan spacer that is just stuck to the pump. If so, it should pop right off.
