I have had exactly this "problem"! I found that if I adjusted the height of the gearbox at the gearbox crossmember, I could get maybe 2-3mm clearance between said bolt and servo. I was still worried that this wouldn't be enough but once I fired it up, no problem. Have given it some beans on the road, and no apparent issues.
Hope this helps and hope you see this (or have already sorted it!).
