’62-’67 CHEVY II BIG BLOCK RACE HEADER
SMITH RACE CRAFT FRONT CLIP
This header is designed for any tube size up to 2 ½” and any collector size up to 5” or collector muffler size up to 6”. This chassis has had some design changes over the years so we will need to determine the version you have. The header has 2 tubes inside the frame and 2 tubes around the frame. If you are using inner fender well panels they will have to be trimmed. This design gave us a lot of room for large oil pans plus starter and oil filter access. Measuring from the side of a stock oil pan we have over 4” of room on each side. On our design car we used a Milodon low profile oil pan #30950 and with a
2 ½” header the bottom of the header was ¾” below the oil pan. Smaller tube sizes will gain ground clearance.
The engine must be in same location that SRC set the chassis up for using their motor plates. Any mini starter will fit a full size GM starter will not fit. The steering column must be installed per SRC instructions. Spark plug access is excellent.
This header will not fit a factory air conditioning box on the firewall, factory column shifter linkage or clutch linkage.
These headers can be installed with the engine in place and you will not have to remove the starter or oil filter.
Driver side, to install start from front to back #1, #3, #5 then #7
Passenger side, #8 first then #2, #4, #6 the rear header bolt will be hard to get to.
Only snug the header bolts don’t tighten them until you install the collectors then go back and tighten the header bolts.
See our header installation tip’s page for additional information.
