65 Mustang JBA 6610S Headers
« on: June 26, 2019, 09:14:33 PM »
Anyone running JBA 6610S stainless steel long tube headers on their manual steering 65/66 Mustang? Interested to see amount of clearance between number 5 tube and the pitman arm with steering wheel turned fully to left. Pictures would be terrific. Have a 65 with these headers and clearance between number 5 and pitman is minimal with left turn....If can't get pics, give me estimate of clearance 1/2" or whatever...

   Martin ,
       I have JBAs (1-3/4 long tube , don't know the #) and had to dent my #5 tube. I don't do pictures , but I can say for sure that the dent had zero affect on drag strip performance . The ET slip didn't change when the dent was added.

In my 68.

About an .060" clearance at full left turn.
