I got home from work, and started to bolt them on, WHAT A TEDIOUS JOB!!!! anyway I had to call it quits after bloody knuckles & 1/32nd turns on the bolts. I hope I get the other side on tomorrow evening. With snow in the forecast, i'll probably kill myself trying to get to the muffler shop, LOL!!!!
brimark, Believe it, or not, i'm not really sure who manufactured the headers, but they are tri-y style. I do know these are a lot heavier gauge then what I was looking at. These headers were gave to me, and I thought, i'd get them a try, no problems with the install so far.....
I spent an entire weekend getting Tri-Y's on my 66. I know what you mean about skinned knuckles and 1/32 turns on bolts! So did you get the drivers side or passenger side on? I'm curious, any clearance problems on the passenger side? On mine, one of the tubes was hard up against the fender well, I had to tweak it back.
As others have said, enjoy that open-header drive to the muffler shop! I pretty much shook the family out of bed when I fired her up in the garage!
Dan, Really the passenger side was the easier side for me... I had to loosen the tranny dipstick tube, and take off the export brace, and with a some twisting & turning (as much as possible in such a cramped space.) They fell right into place. I had the hammer in case I had to ding the headers a little, but I didn't have to use it ;-D
