Hi Ravi,
You could use the DALI-LITE (EMBL) server to align both pdbs, then open the new (aligned) pdbs generated by DALI into PYMOL - that should align the identical helices perfectly and show you the differences in the loops.

Hi Ravi,

I suggest using Secondary Structure Matching to align the helices (see
http://www.ebi.ac.uk/msd-srv/ssm/). You can then load the fitted pdbs into
Pymol for visualisation. I don't know if there is a Pymol plugin for SSM
though. Personally, I use Coot to run the SSM and then load the files into
Pymol for making pretty pictures!!
