headers hitting steering coupler!?

1972 scamp, 318, summit headers, power steering

headers are close enough to the steering column that when i make a right turn, the headers stop the steering shaft from turning (which is kinda scary).

do i take a die grinder to the steering coupler, beat the headers while still in the car(very difficult and possible damage to car) or pull the motor half out take the centerlink out and remove the header THEN beat on it?
\

right now im partial to grinding the steering coupler. its just hitting on the protrusions at the top corners



edit:
'76 k member so spool type mounts
