Ugg one more year older and you wouldn't have this problem. This is common problem as 351 is very tight for a 64-66. I would never cut on the shock towers unless you bring the stability back in through welding. Both Hooker and Hedman make headers for this specific swap, I think that will be you best bet, though not cheep.

-by the way I have a 58 ford f100 with a 289

I knew what you meant when you said 64-66. Actually those are the only years I have owned (2)65s well one was a 64.5 and two 66s a coup and the 2+2 I am attempting the 351 swap.
I got the Hedman shorties recommended by PAW but they still don't fit. Would you think there's a chance I would have better luck with the Hooker?

The Hedman shorties should defiantly fit. What is interfering with the installation, ie what part of the shock tower? If there is a way to PM on this site i will give you my email and you can send me some pictures. If anything it might be just a bit of tin that needs hammered back at this point. Let me know.

Guess either you forgot to wish me luck or your wish just didn't come true.
