Marlin 336C w/Williams 5D Sight

I decided to rebuild an 1967 Marlin 336 RC .30-30 that apparently had a "used" background. No rust, great bore, but I have canoe paddles in better shape than the wood, metal was good as well. So after having the gun high polished, blued, and custom gorgeous wood in the long pistol grip, I have a problem. The Williams 5D Marlin sight is adjusted to minimum height, however the gun still shoots about 8 inches high at 100 yds. Has anyone added this type of sight to their Marlin and how did you change the front sight to lower the bullet impact. Also is there a higher hood available if I must put on a taller front sight. I have been told the Lyman 17A would do this, but that might look a little strange.
