155 Sump nut

I recently had an oil leak from the sump nut in my 1997 2.0 155 so I got another from a dealer. He had none for a 155 but gave me a 156 nut and told me it would do fine.
I have screwed it in fine and the leak has stopped but the 156 nut is longer than the old one. Can anybody see any potential problems with the nut protuding further into the sump than the old one?

No. If there was a problem with it hitting a moving part you would know immediately. I had this problem and it was just the copper washer which had become pitted.
How much longer is it?

It's about twice as long as the old one but it went in very easily and doesn't seem to be hitting anything....
