Help I'm Stumped

I am putting together my sbc and of course as I bolt all of the new pieces back on my rod mainly the steering box I noice that the new steering box has a slightly different outside configuration. And I need shorter spark plugs. Which plugs are the shortest. Been checking out the accel shorties but I was wondering if there was anything else which might be shorter. I checked around on the web and noticed some people are even running 4 stroke lawnmower plugs. I don't want to do this but does anyone have any ideas?

Looks like you have two choices. Do surgery on the steering box or move the motor to the passenger side a little by reconfiguring the mounts. If you do that, you'll also have to move the transmission mount to keep the crank centerline perpendicular to the rear axles. I think I'd be doin' some surgery on the box.
