Bellows on N70?

I have an N70 with a 50 1.8 and reversing ring. I have been using my tripod center post to focus, moving it up and down until I get the focus. Hard , tedious and not the best way. A local shop had a used PB-3 bellows for a good price, so I picked it up and brought it home. It will not mount to the camera because the built in motor drive grip is in the way when I try to turn the bellows to mount on camera. Does anyone have any ideas of how I might be able to work around this problem and use the bellows? Would putting an extension tube between camera and bellows be feasible? An extension tube would give me the clearance but would that on top of the bellows and reversing ring be too much? The bellows is in excellent shape and was only 90 US. Thanks for any suggestions.
