Can I sand down the collar for it to fit ?? Don't want to take it apart

Painful, but I would return the cover. Defective.

There is a helpful thread about checking the machining on these covers before installation. http://www.ifsja.org/forums/vb/showthread.php?t=183822

I won't use a after market timing cover unless I have to. You are better off using a used one. Why did you change it out?
Also, did you correct the oil passages through the new timing set?

The distributor should drop right in without taking the timing cover off.
Good Luck.
