    I got some basic Hedman Headers for my new 350. I got the a/c bracket for them, but that only appears to work with the long a/c compressors. Mine is the short one. The original bracket mounted to the front two header bolts. In addition the p/s bracket attaches to the a/c one.

    Does anyone else have this setup that can tell me how you got it all to work? Any help you can give would be appreciated before I go custom fabricating.

    I am running this setup. You have to cut off one leg of the bracket where it mounts to the header.

    I then used an old metal shock bushing/spacer to hold the bracket against the header. You can also use 4 nuts one size larger than the bolt. I did this for a while too.

    I can take a picture when I get home tonight. It will be a little late. But I'll try to help in any way I can.

    So, I am assuming you cut off the back leg? Then you mounted only the front header bolt? Is there any problems with stability or strength with this method?

    Correct.

    None yet, and have spun the motor to 6800rpm. Works fine for me.
