Red face chevy II steering/oil pan problems!

Shame on myself, I got a old 63 nova wagon I'm putting together for a shop car, had a straight 6, I dropped a 350 I built in today, only to have the stock sbc oil-pan to rub the steering linkage. Yeah I know moroso makes a special pan (along with a few others) But it looks like it only needs about another 1/4 inch of clearence! Any back-yard rodders got any tips? Maybe a big hammer a piece of wood? Ha-ha, is there any other way without pulling the motor back out and buying a pan? Help! Thanks!
