Hedman 1 3/4 fit terrible. (65101) If you need 1 3/4, use something else.Hedmans fit nice
Do you have any pictures of them installed?I have Sandersons on my 383 in a '64, they don't use gaskets, fit great, easy install. Only issue I had was that I needed to dimple 1 tube for the #5 plug. I've had the starter off and had to pull both headers at one time for suspension related work. They are pricey though.
Those look nice, but are pretty pricey. Thanks!Stainless Works headers fit my 67 El Camino great, plenty of room for the oil filter and starter, plus the wide Moroso road race oil pan I had. Work best with straight plug heads, I did have to dent one tube for the angle plug heads I had. They fit better with the LT1 I put in there next, which had angle plug heads but the angle is less than the Victor Jrs on the first engine.
You can see them on my car here
I ran into the same thing with my Trick Flow heads. Of all the headers I've had on small blocks for the past 40 years, these are the hardest to get in/out of the car even when removing/replacing the motor.What heads do you have. My headmans were great until I switched to AFR heads. But my headers have smaller tubes
Yea, they aren't cheap, but were the only headers that fit with the wide road race oil pan I had.Those look nice, but are pretty pricey. Thanks!
DrPepper,I'm going to get a set of Patriot Clippster H8021 mid length for my Fast Burn 385. It has angled plugs. And I want ground clearance. Going into a 72 Elky. I hope they work because IMO the choices are limited if you don't want full length or shorty headers.
