I love these issues, brings back memories. Headers are a sexy bit of kit.

I ended up using Pacemakers and had them modded. I am running a TCP rack and pinion though and it is a 68 so I am sure I have been no help at all.

Ooh and I am on beer number 7.........I love holidays.

gbx78 is running a set of shorties with a RHD TCP rack. I have no idea what they are or modification history. I have modified a number of headers generally Pacemaker for the early falcons. Similar to Cage. I still think the best option is using the Sydney Mustang Supplies RHD headman headers. GT40 heads are the same as standard while the GT40p have revised plug positions which makes it a little harder.


I will someday think of something clever to say.

Yes but your car is RHD they are made for LHD only. Going by the pics you posted I cannot see how they can be modded. You have to get that steering link longer and that will only make it worse for room.

.
So, how do I fix it, I can only mod either the headers or the rack.
Help........ðŸ”Β₯ Or this may happen..


You will not be modifying the rack. No engineer will pass that. The headers are what has to change.

I think I'll take a really big hammer to them. What's the worst thing that could happen? Hahaha ,
I think the next step is to remove the Rhs header, set up the steering column in the correct location. Then connect the steering column to the rack, and see how far I'm out. I'll post some pics and we can re convene, back to the table of knowledge, OK.....

As long as the heads are GT40 not GT40P any headers will fit them I have a set of the Sydney mustang Headmans RHD I'll bolt them to an my engine so you can see how they look they are new in the box which I'll probably sell them as I'm getting a custom set made. 66 mounts and you need the 66, 68 on chassis brackets not 67 they are slightly different they wont fit a 65.

I think the Hedmans go tight to the engine they clear an XF box easy.

The rack can be adjusted to slide depending on where its fouling. My headers are hedman shorties and were ok but the flange fowled and kerry extended it and refitted the flange..

Give peter and rob a call at sydney mustang parts they designed the rhd long headers with hedman for the rhd market. Its not designed for racks however they will tell you its only slight modification to fit a rack. . Saying that.. depends where the issue is specifically. .just general feedback

Of course they are the GT40P heads, just to make it that little bit harder than it needs to be........ And to add insult to injury they are stainless, so I can't weld them myself....

So mark and cut the tubes. Use hard wire to define the new path and then take them to the exhaust place to get new tubes added.

Also you will probably find the RHD headmans wont work on the lhs of yours and mine as we have the starter on the left using the BTR auto, this is the issues i had it was either the rhs or lhs that didnt work with every set i tried. I couldnt buy one of each different model they had to be sold in a set.

Modifying the set you have is the best option as you already own them.

That is a good point. A friends car also using the BTR auto RHD converted 65 using a steering box is using the stock NC headers (they are a shorty like header except shorter) did surprisingly require significant changes to fit. It worked out well at the end though.

My mod would be to take the 2 outer tubes & make the run inside (next to the engine block) & then turn the flange plate 180 degrees. That is basically what the left hand side does.

Hi, I finally have the engine in the car and wired the OEM computer and modified the harness. It's now key ( well screwdriver) start.
It's running like a hairy goat. I'm hoping it's due to the fact the O2 sensors are not plugged in. (Thoughts Hybrid and Husky).
.
Now that's it's running in the car I can now tidy up the engine bay wiring and continue with the rest of the wiring..


P.S what is the do dad thingy half way down the air intake, it's go two wires... I want to replace the air intake ducting, but will need to integrate this thingy in??

Can you get a pic of the part you're talking about? Hard to tell from the vid.
It could be an air temp sensor or something (I don't know these particular engines well) - which if not hooked up could definitely cause tune issues.
No O2 sensors wouldn't be helping either that's for sure.

The o2 sensors or Hego sensors ( as per wiring diagram) are the ones that go into the exhaust. The other one that I was referring to is just before th throttle body, it just pulls out but I can't locate it on the wiring diagram...
