Header/Fuel Line Clearance

Just installed Summit Racing full headers on 66 Mustang with 302. On the front of the driver side frame rail where the fuel line bends out there is approximately 1/4 inch clearance from the header tube. Is this a problem?

Very well could be. We go to some length to keep the fuel from boiling in the float bowls after a shut down, and introducing pre-heated fuel into the mix might be a problem. I'd just re-route the fuel line and keep it as far as possible from the headers as possible.

Will re-route if we stay with the carb. If we go EFI we'll plumb the new fuel lines well clear of the headers. Thanks.
