1990 ford mustang ac help

I am so frustrated. I have a 1990 mustang with factory air.Last year, I att
empted to retrofit the car. However, the receiver drier I purchased would n
ot attach to the compressor manifold/blocks. Inside the low pressure block
was some sort of clip or something that kept the hose that is part of the r
eceiver/dryer from going all the way in. I tried to pry it out and basicall
y ruined the block. This year I attempted to do this again and paid 80 buck
s for a used compressor off of ebay just to get the blocks because I could
not fin them anywhere. And those have this clip or whatever it is too.
I thought maybe autozone gave me the wrong receiver/dryer so I had them ord
er another one and it is exactly like the old one. All I want is to fix thi
s thing so I can drive it once in awhile to keep from putting a lot of mile
s on my new truck but it seems everything is working against me.
Here are some pictures of what I am talking about:

take a hacksaw (put paper towel in the pipe to keep chips from getting in) and just shorten the end of the pipe that's hitting the clip. If there is room you could cut it would a pipe cutter instead of a saw.
