700r4 pan and drive front drive shaft clearance??

Getting ready for a engine and trans swap and want some input. 350 buick and a 700r4 going in maybe and 225 and t14 coming out (sm420 went to another prodject). I have heard that the front shaft does not clear the 700r4 pan well and can cause problems. I am sitting on a spring over lift and exhaust will be built after swap. Also I already eliminated the weak 2 part shaft when I put in the D44 front. Have a motor and trans back at the farm ready to go. Any thoughts?????????

71 deluxe, 225, sm420, HEI, 60" D44s, SOA, lockers, 33x10.5s, york air, ....

Use the longest adapter you can get. The yokes come very close to the right rear corner of the pan so spacing the the transfer case aft and clocking down helps. Might need to limit u-joint size to 1310 as well.
