I bought a set of the long-tube Schoenfeld headers over the winter ( Part number 1186 ). I tried installing them this past weekend and have clearance problems on the left side with the clutch master cylinder. It is a floor mount and it looks like the only way to clear it would be to have a hanging clutch instead. I think it would have been a good idea to relocate the power steering reservoir also, as the hoses would be really close to the header.

Here is a link to the set I bought:

Does anyone know if the 1172 long-tube would fit instead of the 1186?

We used to run the standard adjustable IMCA header with a 60* turnout for the left and 90* for the right. The 1172 looks like it pretty much drops straight down kind of like the adjustable one does.

I have the 1186 set, and they work fine with the exception being they are really close to the steering shaft. all of my PS stuff is on the right side, and i do not run any front mounted pumps.

I use the 1186 also. I have reverse mount pedals, relocated them to the left about 3". I also run the pwr str. reservoir next to the driver's side firewall, but had to get real creative with the hoses. I also moved the steering rod over towards the driver's side 3". You might try using the "short" IMCA headers like this. Turn the pass. side upside down and put a 90* turnback on it, and keep the driver's side rightside up and put a 30* turnback on it.
