is it possible to fllip the pitman arm upside down to gain clearance?
Did we ever find out if the pit-man arm was keyed? If it is keyed, then you can't.
You can not flip it, the other end has a tapered hole.
unless someone can tell me a miracalus fix, the headers are being taken off.
You can not flip it, however, did you try to move the engine over as someone suggested earlier? I had to lift and slide mine couple of times in my 65 before I was happy it was centered properly. The through holes for the large bolts coming from the bottom of the engine mounts are very oversized and offer a lot of movement. Also, was your car originally a six-banger that someone shoehorned a V8 in with "custom" mounts? Hope you solve your problem.
well we had to shift the motor a bit just to get the headers in...so moving it again would cause the headers to hit the inside wheel wells so i dont think that would be possible..and my car was a v8 car to begin with
did some research and i think my pitman arm is right and don't think i can turn it over it will hit the fram rail i don't know time to pull them off i guess,, i wish i knew someone that had tri-headers on and no dent lol
This is just a thought, but did you loosen the steering box and see if it will move a bit?
Did you ever find out how much it was hitting?
too much.. say your backed into a parking space at a store and there is a row of cars in front of you. you cant go out and turn left. learned that 2 rights make a left lol
Are your headers still on? Can you take a picture?
