    Hi,
    I had the same problem. I had to shim the engine up quite a bit for more clearance. Then I bought a different oil pan #971 and cut a notch out and welded it back up. It still rubbed a little. I didn't notch it enough. So I took a piece of angle iron and glued it in place with some silicone. Now it rubs on the angle iron instead of the oil pan. It will take years to rub through 1/8'' angle iron. I just check it once in a while.
