Default hydraulic clutch and brake booster problem

I have a 1967 Mustang that I have purchased the modern driveline, tko with the hydraulic clutch system.
The problem I have is my power brake booster is in the way of the hydraulic clutch linkage.
Has anyone else had this problem?
how did you fix it?

I tried to buy NPD's mini booster for my brakes, however it is the same size as my 9" booster.
I thought it was packaged wrong, so I had them pull another it was the same size.

Any ideas?

How about a picture....

I am having trouble "seeing" the problem.
Building cars is EASY, building cars right is a mite bit harder.

You can make a bracket that goes on the clutch pedal and and offsets the hydraulic clutch master cylinder to give you room to clear the power brake booster.
It will take some experimenting but can be done.

Here are pictures and a write up for for a 67:
