Wastegate fit issue

Hey All! Im just about finished changing my h/e to the euro from the older US on my 79 930. Problem I ran into is, my wastegate dosent fit. It is too big. Is their a different wastegate for the euro h/e's than the US one's? Thanks! Mark

Here is a (bad) picture of what it should look like. The W/G agles away from the engine with the tailpipe end pointing straight to the rear of the car.

Thanks Brian! I think the head of the wastegate may be rotated 180 deg the wrong way. Its hitting the underside. Im going to try and rotate it around and see if this solves it. The US h/e that came off were custom built US h/e's not factory. This was to federalize it to meet US smog back in the day. So the wastegate head may have been messed with prior to my ownership.
