No difference in all small blocks. Make sure you are getting the lever of the pump underneath the pushrod. If the rod is too short it might be a wrong rod or it is damaged.

I think on a small block you can put a long bolt in under the fuel pump to hold the rod in place while you put the pump on. Just remember to remove the long bolt when you are done and put in the short one.
