help - carb too tall on flatfender

I've got a 49 CJ3A that has been reworked by the previous owner. It has what I believe is an F head engine with a carter YF carb. My problem is that the hood hits the carb before the hood is fully closed (and this is without an air cleaner). I really don't want to cut a hole in the hood cause I want to maintain the stock appearance as much as possible. Any suggestions? I'd like to keep the 4 cyl in this one, but the other will be getting a Buick 231 asap. Thanks
