Brake Booster not Lining Up

I have a 7" single diaphragm brake booster single which is being replaced by a 7" dual diaphragm booster. When I placed the new booster in position I found that the master cylinder is not sitting at right angle to the front mounting bolts. It is about 15 degrees askew. I notice when comparing both boosters that the original one seems to have been turned slightly (outside shell) more when it was assembled. How could I rotate the outer shell of the new booster about 3/16" so that the master sits level?
