    Welcome aboard from Houston, Texas! Let see some pics!
  6. If you're working by your lonesome, you are probably best served to remove the tranny first then the engine should come out without too much trouble. Anyway, welcome aboard! Keep up posted with plenty o pics!
  7. Mine were the clamshell type. The edges of the clamshell is what was causing clearance issues with the headers. In lieu of shims, what do you recommend?
  8. BTW, Thanks for the compliment! Yours is very slick as well! I had to replace the interior of mine after I purchased it. Riddled with mold! I installed two new Procar II leather reclining seats with adjustable lumbar. I took the back seats to an upholstery shop and had them replicate the design of the new front seats but in vinyl. They fabricated new cushions and had blasted the frame and repainted. All new....pricey but new!
  9. I searched high and low for headers that were PS compatible but just kept coming short. I spoke with the Sanderson Techs and they assured me that it was. If you have your mind set on Hooker, you might want to do the same before your order. Also, very important, check the condition of your engine mounts. The muffler guy that did my exhaust system (including the Sanderson Header install) told me that my engine mounts were worn and needed replacement. He had much difficulty routing the exhaust to get by the mounts and the left header was touching the piping. I ordered new mounts and install
  10. Do you have power steering? Many of the headers available are not compatible with power steering. I have PS on my 72 Mach 1 and I used Sanderson Headers that are compatible with PS.
  11. Nice slick ride!! Welcome aboard from Houston, TX! Mo Pics Please!!!
