On to the passenger side. If we tried to clearance the number six header tube, there wouldn't be any flow going through it. For this picture the motor is sitting up an inch to show the header clearance issue. We couldn't lower it into position. Not wanting to cut, bend, shorten, and weld the ceramic-coated header, we ended up cutting the TCI frame tube. (Note: TCI now has 2-inch headers available that fit nicely and offer more ground clearance than the Hooker 2-inch units). Since the car was at our friend's shop (Charlie's Auto Collision, Tuckerton, New Jersey), certified frame specialist Bill Muehleisen took care of business.
