    It was a “This is going to hurt me more than it is going to hurt you” moment.

      May I ask how you pulled the driver side header? I'm I. The same dilemma as the OP

      This is an old thread but I’m the OP. I ended up pulling the engine and pulling the pan to modify. Only thing I would recommend. Now my header and pan are happy. Tons of clearance. Drivers side header stays in the car While you pull engine

      I put it a couple feet up on some 6 ton jack stands, pulled the Z-bar, mini-starter, and dropped the steering center link (and cycled the steering side to side depending on which side I was working on). I also pulled the torsion bars. By doing that I was able to pull the drivers side header without unbolting the mounts or raising the engine, the Milodon road race pan wasn’t an issue.

      It’s in my build thread here, post #231
      My "new" '74 Duster- or why I need a project like a hole in the head

        Thank you! I'm feeling like I need a hole in head! Lol . I blame the pan. Without it the headers would be fine! But it came with my block and it is part of the build
