This header is designed for any tube size up to 2 ¼” with up to a 4” collector size, or up to a 5” collector muffler size. The design has 2 tubes inside the frame and 2 tubes around the frame on each side. This chassis has had some design changes over the years we will have to determine which version you have. The engine needs to be on SRC motor plates in the correct position with the steering column installed per SRC instructions.
Oil pan clearance is excellent with over 4” of room on both sides, measuring from the side of a stock oil pan. We used a Milodon #30900 oil pan on our design car and with a
2 ¼” tube size the bottom of the header was ¼” lower than the bottom of the oil pan. Smaller tube sizes would gain more ground clearance. The header requires a mini starter, either a Hitachi or Nippondenso style. A full size GM starter will not fit. Spark plug access is excellent.
We offer Power Master #9540 starters.
This header is intended for race vehicles only it will not fit factory air conditioning, column shifter linkage or clutch linkage.
With the engine, oil filter and starter all in place install both sides in the same sequence. Front tube first then the rear tube then the center tubes which are the two around the frame. Only snug the header bolts, don’t tighten them until the collectors are installed then go back and tighten the header bolts. These headers are way too easy to install.
Refer to our header installation tip’s page for additional information.
