Just put in these Hedman headers that are very similar to the model I took out which had about 1/4”-1/2” clearance to the steering box without any obvious reworking. I wasn’t expecting to have this issue. These are making contact, see where the blue tape is (I used the tape to protect them but now I can’t get it all off). Do I need to take them out and massage them or can I leave them? What will happen if I leave them? If I have to rework them, how do I do it without damaging the ceramic coating? Will a plastic mallet work?
