Need Help, Hugger Headers On Chevy Pickup

I have a 1984 Chevy C-10 and I'm dropping a 1989 350 in it and I bought some Hugger Headers and I was putting them on to see how they fit (while engine was on stand) and my drivers side wont clear the motor mount because the engine is like all engines where the driver side heads are moved about an inch forward. Do they make spacers that relocate the headers a little to the rear? Or is there a cheap way to fix this? I bought them off eBay and it's passed the return period so if I can't do anything, I'll have to just sell them. Please help.

Sorry I posted this in General Hot Rodding. Don't know how I did that but I don't know how to change it.

They don't fit cause they're made for street rods that have different mounts. Cheapest way is to move the tube that interferes with your mount. I did that once. Muffler shop made a new piece we welded back in.
