jpin86 I picked one of these up in the junkyard off a Ram truck for $5.00. This works great for our application. The starter cable is 60 inches long. Plenty of cable to string across the top of the bell housing to the starter. You have to bend the starter end a little to point the cable up a little, and the end that goes on the fuse box has to be bent 90 degrees.

I'm concerned about the shape of the tubes on the shorties that I'm seeing. There just isn't a lot of room on the drivers side.
Man, ain't that the truth. On the driver's side, clearing the starter was the easy part - getting up and over the upper link and the front driveshaft was the real thrill. Here's what I did:

I just replaced all my battery cables/starter/alt wires. I just ran it from the starter, up over the bellhousing on the transmisson, up to the battery. Made it really easy that way. Also wrapped the wire in some wire loom to futher protect it.

As for your question on headers, I too just have summit block hugger headers. They gave me the clearance I needed.

jpin86 I may end up going that route, but I'm not to crazy about the looks of the block huggers. I did find a picture of the shorties on an engine in a truck and there's no way they'll fit.

I have the summit hugger headers with a 2.5 collector. They are fine. Not anything like custom, but they suit the need for a tight space economically.

On my Hemi, the starter wires simply run from the passenger side, behind the heads and basically across the top of the upper bell housing. Just had to make sure it was clear of the headers. I did run a heat sleeve on those (and many other) wires.

And speaking of headers, I run a set of shorties. They work well, but the exhaust was definitely the most challenging part of my swap.

jpin86 What are y’all running for exhaust (manifolds, headers, single dual). I set my manifolds in place it’s a tight squeeze, but they’ll work. I really don’t want to run block hugger headers. Anyone running shorties or full length headers?

Napa part number 10702, that has a 3/4. 5/8 ends. Itís shaped like a z but I cut off the one end and it worked perfectly. The othe hose is a dayco part number 80407. It has a 90 degree end and is 60 inches long. This will wrap around the back of the engine and connect to the water pump pipe. Itís plenty long and will need trimmed. The Napa hose was $19.99 and the Dayco hose was $9.99 at advance auto parts.
Great information will make sure I add this to my list of parts for future reference. Thanks for sharing.

Great info! Love to see others helping out with critical part numbers to save people the headache of trial and error. (i had trial and error with all of my cooling system hoses.)
