Steering collumn swap clearance problems

I'm putting an 82 chevy halfton steering collumn in a 55 2nd series truck but my steering linkage won't move because it's up against my headers. Does anyone know of any tricks to getting the linkage to work in this application. maybe this is a miracle thing,thanks for any info. JK

What are the differences between the stock steering and the new steering that you're trying to install? Place them side by side and compare. I am thinking you mya have to shorten the newer one.
