302 for my 57

Doing a 302 swap into my 57 F100 and I'm encountering crossmember and stock stearing box clearance problems. It looks like the exhaust manifolds from a 88-94 F150 - 351W might work if they will fit the head. Will 351 exhaust manifolds fit on a (88) 302 head.
If you have any suggestions from personal experience, they would be appreciated. I would like to avoid trial and error parts searches and custom ($$$) headers.
FTE is a great resource but my searches have not been able to turn up an answer to my question.
Thanks for your help in this matter.

I would try posting this in the small block V8 section of this forum. Go to the main forum page and scroll down to you come to the engine section and then the small block V8.

My truck is tighter in relation to yours. It had a 302 in it when I got it with long tube headers.

Thats good.

Thanks for the replies guys. I've been looikn at exhaust manifolds on Ebay and there are a couple that I need to lay my eyes on. I need the driver side to turn down after the third cylinder and the pass. side to turn down not back at an angle.

BTW - Question for the moderator...

I'm wondering just how old some of these guys are if I'm 68 years old and still a "Junior User"?
