Another approach is to use correctly bent/contoured lower radiator hoses. The cast lower offset water adapters from Model Engineering Co are perfectly fine products - though in my case, I just didn't like the looks of them (ran them on a 59AB for a year or so). When I built the new engine for my 32, went with some nicely formed hoses from Aulis - they worked out great.

Here is a link:

Here's Aulis on Fordbarn just in case you want to contact him.
