Pilot 73" Sbach help with motor mount

I seem to have a predicament. I am building my Sbach with a DLE 30rear carb and it appears that maybe the airframe was an earlier one designed for the side mount carb?!?! When I slip the cowling over the front the engine sticks out a good 1 1/4" longer than it should. Looking at other folks build threads the mounting box that the standoffs mount to is longer on mine than others. Anybody else with this problem?

Problem solved. Machined the standoffs down and punched a bigger hole in the firewall for the carb.
