Cj Champion Cooling 4 Core radiator issues

CJ specs: 77 CJ-5 304/T-150/D20 mostly stock, frame off resto just completed.

Recently purchased a Champion Cooling Systems aluminum 4 core radiator P/N MC853. Quality looks really good and it sure is nice to look at..... won't fit... It hits the power steering lines and will not bolt up because the drivers side is approx. 3/4" to high and won't align with the mounting holes. I spoke with the company and they say they have had no reports of fitment issues with this P/N... So now I'm fighting to get my money back. Has anyone dealt with or purchased a radiator from this company? Could my power steering lines be run wrong??? Don't see how but worth asking, seems to me there is only one way to install them and the original 3 core radiator fit just fine. Any information/advise much appreciated.
