It is about 1-1/4" in the sleeve, but I am going to have to wind it back in another 1/4" or so as one of the piston lines won't reach and seat fully. I thought of beating on the headers if I decided it didn't turn enough on the road test.1969XR7Vert wrote:Greg,
...Edit: I read that you did this on purpose for clearance. How much drag link thread is inside the control valve sleeve?
P.S. I have the same problem with my Hooker headers on Isabel's 351C. I beat the tube a fair amount (beat a few tubes actually, sometimes you just have to) and put VHT ceramic paint on the beat area (the headers are ceramic coated) but left turns are still limited somewhat.
Like you said, at this point there are some things you just have to do
Thanks for the encouragement, it helps when one's pace is 2 steps forward and one step back.
