A good location is about in line with the leading edge of the wing or slightly back.
That's what I'd do. Not a very difficult mod. you could really just cut out the existing block, notch the fuse further up to accomodate the gear, epoxy it in with some reinforcement and patch the hole that it leaves where it was originally located. With the proper tools and a couple small pieces of covering it could be done in under an hour, minus time for the glue to dry.
