So the question was...........

"Maybe somebody should make a Header Chart.....like the Modified Tire and Wheel Chart??????" from some guy over at Stangnet

Im up to doing this, what categories should the chart have? To start with it'll have the obvious stuff.........

Brand/stock #
Engine size
Modifications
Steering system (power/TCP/Flaming River rack .etc)
Fastener type
Clearance issues
Ease of install

It will be in PDF format and much like Nicks wheel-tire chart with an enter form

Great idea. When you're ready for the 71-3 info, let me know.

I"m following you:

I think it is a great idea


You should also have in there:

1. YEAR of the mustang

2. WHERE the headers came from. I know some headers although the same thing (like tri-ys) seem to very on fit depending on where you order them from.

3. WHAT kinda of gaskets

For Instance:

I would supply my combo to you as follows:

351c 4v
1965 Mustang
Ford Power Train headers for 67-8 351c swap
Stock Manual Steering without a shelby quick steer kit
Standard header bolts
Mr Gasket 4v black gaskets

Needed to 'bump' 3 tubes to alleviate small touching problem on lower shock towers. Also need to use 3 peice 1964 falcon motor mounts for this install

You know, I'd really like t know WHO makes thos tri-y's. The Mustang shops never list a manufacturer. I find it amusing when you can't even mock them up on the engine without mods. I remember inserting a piece of pipe into the collector and tweaking the header out to widen them up. They practically touched my C-4. Other than that, great headers.
