Default Gates T42023 timing belt pulley mismatch

I ordered the Gates T42023 timing belt pulley from rockauto.com, expecting to get this (as it was pictured on the site). This is the updated part with more durable bearings:


And instead, got the old, narrow bearing obsolete part:



I guess I will call rockauto and see what they can do. I'd rather use the updated part as I'm in the middle of a head gasket change.

Well, I called rockauto and they informed me sometimes gates uses old stock with the new part number, and there is no guarantee as to what you will get. I am just going to use it and hope it runs for a while. Just frustrating. Does anyone have a source for the good wide bearing pulley?

Yes they both fit perfectly, its just I'd rather have the stronger wide bearing pulley on the car as it will last quite a bit longer.
