Header help

I have a 62 short fleet that I have backhalfed and I just installed a dart 540 and I have found that the headers I have will not fit
They are super comp full length headers
2 inch with a 3.5 inch collector
Hok-2213HKR
Any suggestions?
Do I need shorties or maybe a 1 7/8 headers
Or maybe a different brand of headers
These hit the sides and...the lower control arm
Thx in advance

Re: Header help

I think mad dog headers might make a few sets that might work.

Re: Header help

Hedman elites semi fit with alot of massaging (aka) beating the hell out of them, but I did have to put plates under the motor mounts because the passenger header was hitting the lower a arm
And that's because I moved the mounts 1 inch forward
Always something
