Fuel Filter Issues - EL Fairmont Ghia

I have a EL Fairmont Ghia, and I am currently for the first time trying to replace the fuel filter.

When I removed the original, it was the Ryco aluminum Z373 and its being replcaed by the new Ryco Z373 steel ones. The problem I am having is that the original one is about an inch longer than the new ones, and the fuel lines are sitting properly in it. Everything I switch on so the fuel pump pumps fuel through, it leaks on one side, so I move the filter a different way, and it leaks from the other side. I put the original filter back in and no leaks or dramas.

Is there a new technique to fitting these new shorter fuel filters in Falcons, or am I just doing it wrong??
