Camshaft holding plate problem

We are putting together my 3.4 engine with Mahle p&c's we have the cylinder heads and cam housings mounted. We are having a problem with the chain housings. They are too long and we canít put the camshaft holding plate on due to the increased cylinder height. What is the common remedy? Shaving the chain housing or grinding the opening of the holding plate to make it slightly oblong?

Did you measure the deck height of the pistons to the top of the cylinders when you assembled the motor ?
If the deck height was correct your heads must have had a lot of material removed for the housings to be that far off.
If both surfaces are good you could probably eliminate the gasket with a good sealant, Curil T would do the trick.
Good Luck.

Turns out the twin plug heads that I bought were machined down 1 mm (assume to eliminate some pitting) so we've machined the chain housing 1mm to compensate.
