good luck is all I can say. I am running those exact same headers on my 304 with a t15 tranny. I have had all kinds of problems between it rubbing against the frame rails, rubbing against the steering shaft, heating up my brake lines, and it is nearly impossible to run exhaust because it ends out at my tranny crossmember. I dont even feel like they should sell these headers with all the problems they create (or any inframe headers for that matter). I am going to buy a fenderwell setup pretty soon.

I dont see how the headers could create a problem shifting gears on a manual tranny. Is the header interfering with your clutch linkage? Give us more info such as what tranny you have and what exactly it is doing.

Bill

It doesnt interfere with my clutch at all,whats happening is my shifter hits the inspection cover down at the boot and it wont let me in to second gear.if i move my drivetrain to the right a little it looks like my shifter would be in the middle of the boot so i can have more room but then my collector will touch my spring hanger.I dont know what im gonna do.I wonder if i could get the header bent a little so it will stay away from my frame.all in all i still need to make sure my transfer case yoke is in line with the rear yoke. thanks for the input bill maybe you or someone can help me out some more.By the way im using my t4 tranny right now until i get my hands on a t18.

Hedman sucks ...flat out truth thier 350 sbc headers burn wires , and the amc ones have clearance issues . I have nothing good to say about Hedman .I called them with my problem ,and they said to expect some problems as it was a perfromance product! I will never buy Hedman again .Sorry you guys did .Either get a BFH and clearance it .Or find a good exhaust shop to rework the headers .

I HIGHLY recommend the Hedman Fenderwells. I DO NOT CARE FOR ANY in-frames. They all SUCK, and cause major interference/mechanical problems, such as brake lines, clutch linkage, other rubbing problems.

Check out this topic for more info! Soon to be "updated"! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />
