Title: Got the engine in
Post by: Corey on April 08, 2008, 05:40:19 PM
Ok guys I got my engine put in with the headers had to do some modifying of the right side header but it fits fine the left header rubs the steering linkage but I think I have an idea to cure that if it works I will let y'all know what I did. Here are some pics.

Well I cured the steering linkage issue. I used the pitman arm for a '74 dart it took some slight modifying but it works.

Yeah it was. The linkage was rubbing on the bottom of the left header.

Well the Dart's pitman has a greater drop to it but i had to space it with a couple of shims where the nut goes for the gearbox the pitman is thinner for the dart than for the fury but not by much.
