Alright,

I am at a loss. There doesn't appear to be enough clearance to remove the header now that it is diconnected. What am i missing?

TIA,

Ron Mau

Hi Ross,

     I removed the header from the bottom of the car.  If you had to jack up one side of the engine to get better access to the nuts then this will give you even more clearance.  From my dusty memory, the header doesn't really just slide out but has to be twisted a bit and "finagled" but it wasn't too hard.  As a recommendation for re-installation, pick up from the JHPS store some copper nuts to bolt it back on as the socket size is smaller (same nominal thread dia obviously) making it much easier to get access to the fasteners.  Hope this helps.

To get mine out, & back in, I had to remove the steering shaft & knuckle. A very tight fit and it's very hard to reach the nuts retaining the header to head. Also pay attention to the orientation of the knuckle, if you put it back in the wrong way it will fowl the engine. Good luck, Colin
