I'd like to see a picture of the oil pan you're using with it in the car to see what kind of clearance there is. My MII pan in the '71 had maybe an inch? maybe?  in front of and above the rack. The '77 power steering rack is bigger so.....
If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?

Motor isn't where it's going to be. The aluminum bell I have on has ribs & a raised area where the clutch fork goes & I cannot get it back far enough, till I get the new Quick Time Bell # 6065.
Right now it's about 1/4" above the rack. It will be going back another 1.5" to 2" yet.
Going to make my own Headers & sell the two sets of Headman Headers I have.
New rack from Flaming River.
