Perhaps you could unbolt the engine mounts and raise the engine/gearbox complete, and maybe drop the draglink and pitman/ider arms to get some extra room.

I've fitted a couple of different style of (genie) extractors to a ZA years ago withouth toooooo much hassle (similar engine/bay/steering box combo), i reckon that's how i got around that extremely snug fit.
