No, I believe Enrique that the connector is burnt. His headers (front crossover flange) were basically resting up against the connector when he installed them at Bill'*. It worried ME that it was that close.

So these headers are designed for a 65-E?

If thats the case that would explain a lot

Yeah... he was going for performance at all costs. The thing I found odd was the connector inside cooked and not the outside one. I can see the outter one.

Reading this thread again, I didn't see where he stated it was the inside connector though.

I'd assume outside since it'* really the only possible scenario.

Ok first I am a moron....


Yes the header was pretty much resting on the connector. I also discovered that a small part of the header flange was actually touching the transmisson casing . I examined the wire and it doesn't look terrible but some what melted. Yesturday I was ready to drive myself and the car into the East river....


Now that I have cooled off I think it can all be corrected . I cannot remove the connector without removing the front header.

I will take pics later and update...

thanks for the help guys

Your header is easy to remove. Pull plugs and it'* history.

Why did you lounge this.. it seems like a problem to me.

I think he lounged it because it was mostly meant as a rant and not a discussion on his problem. We know the problem and the cause so I think he just wanted to vent. I don't blame him.
