Unhappy Stick shift conversion kit

This should be a simple one. I have a 76 Chevy 1/2 ton with a three speed on the column. I want to put it on the floor. I have a stick conversion kit I bought at the local auto parts place ( generic truck conversion kit). My problem is that the speedometer drive is in the way of the shift kit mounting bracket. Does anybody make a conversion kit just for this transmission or can anyone tell me how to reposition/rework the speedo unit so the kit will work?

sup. its hard enough with a kit made specifically for your year and model, let alone a generic one. i am doing the same with my 69' el camino. Did chevy make your model with a stick as well? they probably did, and your best bet is to find a donor car to get the assembly. Good luck.
