Are you using rams horns manifolds? If you're using a rear dump manifold of older vintage, you'll have to change them out.

You might be able to use shorty headers, then make the y pipe clear the linkage. Block hugger headers might get in the way anyway instead of solving the problem. You can usually pick up a set of corvette rams horn manifolds at a junkyard or swap meet for pretty cheap. They actually flow pretty good too for cast iron!
