Gen3 hemi tkx swap

Having some issues with the QuickTime bell housing… the advertised depth of this bell is 7.300. This bell is sb/ gen 3 driver side starter.. I referenced quicktimes specific gen3 tko/tkx with passenger side starter and it’s the same 7.300 depth.. All my engagements are on the ragged edge. Pilot bearing needs to be custom to fully engage. And clutch is on the very end of the spline on input shaft.
Now I referenced lakewoods aluminum gen3 specific bell and its depth it 7.08. .220 difference. Which would make everything happy. I’m about 5 seconds away from throwing this very expensive bellhousing to the curb. I like my feet too much to get an aluminum bell housing. Any thoughts?
