Re: Headers for 67 El Camino with 350
I installed a set of Hedman 68298 on my '67 with 383. Fit very nicely; had to jack up drivers side a little, even on a lift. They cleared my clutch "Z" bar, and only two areas needed "modification"., but NO denting or banging. No O2 bung, but that's easy.
On drivers side, lower control arm, rear bushing,; had to grind about 1/4" inch from lower housing to get it right...slight grind, not a big deal.
Also, #5 plug clearance is tight; I used short plugs, Autolite #104; ground a little off plug top/tip so boot would clear header, about 1/4" again, and have no problems.
Passenger side fits, clears, no problem...drivers side had both issues, but not big deal. They don;t hang low but they are not even length: passenger side collector extends about 3-6" further back than drivers.
Check Amazon for deals..
