Since the column was in the car and the steering shaft and u-joints had arrived, I decided to make the car steer. After cutting the collapsible shaft to length I discovered the shaft and u-joint hit the header.
I will push the column in about an inch. The wheel is a little close now. Pushing it toward the firewall about an inch will make it just right or maybe a little far. This should move the shaft and the u-joint down and away from the header.
If that isn't enough, I will probably try to move the engine to the right about half an inch and maybe up about a quarter inch.
In the end, I may have to get a different set of headers. How do the guys with the stock steering column location do it? I moved the column over to the left as far as I could and I still have clearance issues!
