Yea unfortunately it's much tricker to fix a lens that can't make it to infinity rather than focusing past it. You need the lens to get closer to the sensor, not further away.

I have certainly seen options to adjust the infinity stop and focus ring position in FD lenses. If the lens is the problem, it should be corrected, and it is not a matter of modifying the mount.
