Kitchen cabinet soft close replacement hinge

Rercently, we had to replace a pair of soft close hinges on a cabinet door. The original hinges have the word "BREMEN" & the number 1 1/4 on them. The replacement hinges have the letters HR & the number 1 1/2 on them.

After replacing the original hinges, we've made every possible adjustment on the new hinges, but the gap/reveal between the edges of the left & right door when closed has increased dramatically. Is this increase in gap/reveal, due to the change in the number on the hinge (1 1/2 vs 1 1/4)?

Yep. It's likely changed the amount of overlay by 1/4". Most hinges barely have 1/8" of adjustment.
