c900 Fuse Box Compatibility

The fuse box on my '87 has some melted areas from something that must have occurred with a previous owner's wiring modifications gone wrong. Basically the female ends that clip into the plastic assembly will no longer grab. Rather than some hack fix I figured I would just replace the plastic assembly with a used good one. Question is whether I can use the same assembly from a later year car like this one:

1993 will not work for your app. Pretty sure you'll need another fusebox from a LH 2.2 car (86-88, assuming you have a t16)

I had hoped the terminal layout had not changed drastically. I recall my '89 looked like a perfect match, so I may be able to get away with a pre-ABS version of the box. Will have to look into it a bit more.

the later boxes went to a blade style pin in the connector (91-93?) You MAY get away with an 89, but I'm pretty sure at least the starter circuit is different. I recently went through this same scenario with my 89 and found that years were pretty specific.
