That does make the project trickier, but not impossible. The large
conduit probably goes to a meter base. If so. the meter could be
pulled, feed wires disconnected and the 2" nipple removed. A
replacement nipple 1 1/2" longer then gets screwed back in place
lightly while the spacers are installed. Unless you have an absolute
forest of EMT into the box, there is usually enough give in the EMT to
allow modest movement. If that is so, then the new nipple gets
tightened, feed wires replaced, meter installed and you're in
business. In the worst case, some wires in the panel could be
temporarily removed and offset conduit connectors used. Would that
work for you?
