Have any of you had a problem with your headers interferring with your clutch fork? I just installed a pair of Hedman elite series headers, and the third tube runs right behind my clutch fork. I can only engage the clutch half way. What should I do to remedy this? Bend the header or modify the clutch fork???

Welcome to M&M Colt 68 !
There are significant differances between 3 and 4 speed clutch "Z" bars. 90% of the 3 speed "Z" bars will interfere with aftermarket headers due to there geometry. Your alternatives are to find a 4 speed "Z" bar from a junk yard or NPD, or cut, alter and re-weld your 3 speed unit. This is common.
