I' am installing a 396 in a 69 coupe it originally had a small block and I'm in the process of converting it I also have a 700R4 matched up to it I have it in now but the header on the driver side is up tight against the steering box and there's not a lot of room against the firewall for the msd distributor I'm putting in. If I raise the tail end of the transmission I can get enough clearance, I'd have to get or make a taller bracket piece for the transmission crossmember to do this. Is there a problem with it? Any thoughts on the tight fit between the header and the steering box? I have the correct mounts and the headers were supposed to be for this application.
