Re: 67 Mustang - Help 1 Barrel to 2 Barrel Acc Linkage

You can unscrew the post for the stock linkage and make a longer on out of a bolt or some rod and thread the end. It's 1/4-20 iirc. I don't know if that helps.

Re: Headers to starter clearence

a little off topic, I'm still waiting for a picture of a 250 with the ebay headers on it. I know they don't fit high mount 200's, but I think the taller deck and late model small starters may give the clearance needed.

The other option that you might have would be to weld a nut to the broken bolt. Kevin Yeah that :thumbup: . Even just lighting the end up with the mig can break it free as it cools.

You mean exhaust gasket, not "head gasket". I would pull the valve cover and get a visual on the offending racker/lifter/pushrod. Pull the plugs so you can more easily turn the engine over with a ratchet/breaker bar ect and see what's going on.

You need to get the one with the 1.75" outlet. Scott Drake makes them. All the ones with the X on the casting are the 69-on 2" outlet castings I think. If you have an early flange outlet style manifold you are sol and should just go to the 2" if you have to change the exhaust.
