You must have the wrong "frame" mounts!
He absolutely does.
I asked earlier if he had a BBC in a 1st gen. This is exactly the problem I had.
I got the car with big headers already in it. The car originally came with a 327 and someone put this BBC in it but didn't change the frame mounts. So they had to dent the headers.
I bought the right frame mounts and put them in, now there is plenty of room between the steering box and the headers. My headers use to sit, literally a paper's width away from the p/s box. Now its about an inch or so away.
Thinking of replacing my headers on the drivers side because I don't like the dents in them.
