Default Help! Zipper foot for 301

I tried using a zipper foot on my 301 but it doesn't seem to line up properly. The foot is for a slant needle, part 161166, so it should work. On my other machines (66, 15, 99, 221) I position the foot very close to the needle but when I do that with the 301, the needle hits the foot. Ouch! Of course I can reposition the foot but then it doesn't line up nicely with the cording that I am sewing on. Does anyone else have trouble using a zipper foot (or other specialty feet) on a slant needle? I have 301's, 401's, a 500 so if anyone has tips specific to each of those models I would appreciate them! Btw, I LOVE my vintage machines!!!!
