hooker competion header removal on 390 Torino

Anyone know how to remove the right side header from a 390 68 Torino? I have disconnected the right side motor mount and raised the right side as much as I can. Header still cant be removed from the car. This is sure a lot of trouble to replace a starter.Any help appericated.
Thanks
Terry

just may have to jack the right side of the car up, (put it on stands) and then wiggle the header out from the bottom. I dont have headers on my 68 390 yet, but sure looks fun

I've never touched an FE torino/fairlane, but have had clearance issues during installing/removing small block headers on the passenger side, it helps sometimes to remove the idler arm from the frame to gain additional clearance. Hope this helps.
