Dougs 368 and Hotchkis TVS clearance

Wondering if anyone is running this setup? I have AFR heads (195), TKO 600 with hydraulic clutch, no power brakes or steering and will be going with the Dougs 368. I dont think there is going to be clearance issues in the engine compartment. Stock pitman arm...not MOOG.

I also have the TVS in and I want to make sure that with the drop in height I was not going to run into any clearance (ground) issues. After looking through the recent extensive post and members signatures I did not see anyone with TVS.

Also...suggestion on piping? Flowmaster/Magnaflow?


Hopefully turning over the motor in 2wks...after 5yrs of being apart and 20 yrs of sitting.

68 project...reassembly starting: (383, AFR 195, Air Gap, Comp Cam XR276HR, 1.6 CC Gold rollers, Holley 750, 4/09) (TKO 600 conversion from T350 4/09) (floor pan restored 6/09). (12 bolt 3.73, Wilwood disc, Hotchkis TVS 7/09), Dougs 368 with Big Dog mufflers (9/09), 383 fired up 9/30/09, Candy Apple Red 2012 with white RallyBee stripe

I know what post you were talking about. It was not the pitman arm that he was having trouble near, it was the idler arm. (other side of the car). If you are wondering about ground clearance the Doug's headers are supposed to tuck up to the floors well. This could be a problem for you, IF your AFR's have raised exhaust ports.

Yes, They do tuck up to the floor well. I dont have the TVS but I did put in new one inch drop springs. Not on the road yet but looks like plenty of ground clearance.
