If I'm seeing your measurements correctly, t appears the "new" dist has a slightly larger diameter than the "old" one. As long as the o-ring fits snug against the intake, you're good to go. The clamp holds the dist down square against the intake.

O.K., thank you.
I thought that an O-ring should be there but my original didn't have one or the new didn't either. I see no groove on the orig. and new distributors. I looked at the Parts Manual and Assembly Manual also. Did not find an O-ring referenced.
Are there any resources for the O-ring for an 1981-350?
