would anyone happen to have a picture of the upper steering shaft inside the engine bay?
I think something may have fell off due to when we put on the headers,

here is my issue, I went looking inside the engine today and noticed there was something missing, and looks like i am correct, this rod is not there now, when we put the driver side header in i think we hit the cable or something and put it in Netural, and it seems to be in every gear correct I got under it and checked. so I would assume if this cable or whatever its called isnt on i cant start it?

Its in bucket seat cars to. It goes from the tab on the column to the shifter lever on the trans.

Limey
And
Possum that arm is adjustable. Its in 2 pieces , there is a bolt at the intersection of the 2 pieces.

Nice, I see you got the spreader bars for the valve covers. Did that fix the valve cover leak?

thepossumface, underneath, are your frame stiffeners still connected with those long tube headers? Never seen headers fit with them still in there.
