    Just swapped a 440 into my 70 swinger and I am having problems with drag link clearance. I have stock front suspension with a 187 oil pan. Does anyone have any tips or secrets before I go to grinding on my sway bar?

    Thanks, DK

    Your steering linkage height may need to be adjusted. It is adjustable by filing the idler arm mounting holes and shimming the steering box. Specs and instructions are in the MP chassis manual.
