Cut V8 motor mounts

Post by McComet1963 »

Wanting to keep the headers from rubbing on the manual steering box.
Options are to cut about 1/4 in mounting hole on both mounts hopefully to shift the hearing away from running.
Anyone ever do this?

Ok so I got an answer from Modern Drive = NO
I will however dimple the headers fit...

Also the headers are wrapped and I am told this will void the warranty and destroy the headers from the inside...

Anybody running uncoated headers? Shorty's from Sanderson.
How's the heat under the hood?
