I'm trying to convert my Shimano Ksyrium SL to Campy. Bought the freehub on forum and it looks to be the right one based on the online sellers, but the one I removed has a deeper flange that goes into the hub than the replacement Campy one. Did I buy the wrong part, or is there some bushing I need to add?
Here's the difference. Note the part that accommodates the cassette looks to be the correct size.

Does the one on the left have a bearing in the base or yellow bushing?

Well that explains it. It's a bearing on the old one; new one has a bushing. Anything I can do with the new one to use it?

Hmmm. Do they sell Campy replacements for those freehubs?
