The FS6 mounting ears are slightly further apart, so you'll have to slot the rear mounting bracket, at least I had to:

Probably depends on the manufacturer. Mine (circa 2005) fit like a glove.

I had to grind a mount on a compressor for my '87 D150  recently because the casting had changed from factory. I'm guessing that's what happened on your FS6. The manufacturers don't have any institutional knowledge for the reasonings behind the original dimensions and change them because they are unaware of all of the application interfaces.
