    Doug's headers not fitting - frustration

    I strongly recommend sending pix, particulars, have all the answers as to where the engine sits as per that chart I posted. Have all the answers ready, and call or mail all that stuff. Particularly the torsion bar/collector beating adjustments. I have had a flange on crooked as I mentioned, they...

    Small block headers: worst to best fitting. List your experience.

    I've been installing headers since the 60's. The 4 yr apprenticeship seemed to be an endless chain of 4 barrel manifolds, 3/4 race cams, headers, and 4:11 gears. Ive installed most brand headers into most breeds of cars, and an A-Body Dodge is a piece of cake compared to some other vehicles ...

    Doug's headers not fitting - frustration

    You'll need to check the diagonal measurements of the datum points as shown, left front to right rear, then right front to left rear, compare them and the other diagonals and see if the frame is "diamond" shaped . Many roundy-round cars are, some by choice, others not, lol

    I have put a flat washer under the 2 inside/inboard steering box mount bolts, to angle box away from engine, then loosened the 3 bolts holding the steering column base to the floor, to align as nec, - to gain clearance. I have seen a u-joint replace the coupler, can't remember vehicle. "Flaming...

    1967 dodge dart 340 engine headers

    Hi, welcome to the site, lotsa knowledgeable friendly folks here. Mtrhead has named the 2 newer design headers with improved ground and spark plugs clearance. This question is asked very often, so a quick search of "exhaust" will lead to a lotta helpful threads . Keep in mind, there are...

    Doug's headers not fitting - frustration

    I had a a Challenger bblk, I had to take a belt sander to the head flange to get it to fold under, kinda like this one. That header was fkd, but I got it to fit. The old days were a nightmare, no 2 headers were the same, hand welded, flange was like a mountain range, weld/ file every set. At...

    I'm often happy with 1/8th clearance, depending on torque side and mount condition. No rattles, no leaks, no dings .

    Doug's headers not fitting - frustration

    Bob, the only other time I saw an issue like this, the installer didn't know the engine sits something like 1 1/2 inches to the passenger side, and he had centered the engine in the frame and had major issues like you. I'd really be interested, I'm sure I asked before, where your engine/crank...

    I'm convinced there's something outta whack with those headers. Trust me, I done bunchas. I haven't seen anyone have so many issues with sooo many different things .

    I'm really at a loss as to why you're having so much trouble Bob, I wish I had a magic wand to help you out. I have had to remove the steering column and remove a few inches off the bottom of the column, and move the lower bearing up. I really don't remember which vehicle. Make sure you contact...

    Doug's D453-ss

    Very nice . I'd keep the bags on as long as possible, to just before fire up. Hand prints often show after fire-up with Ceramics, even after wipe-down with brake clean. Not sure about the SS . fwiw .

    Tailpipe opinion

    He loosened the tank straps and shifted it to best position, and folded tank corner a bit . It was a bit messy, proto type, so to speak.

    Tailpipe opinion

    My son's got offset, minitubs, 2 1/2 beside the tank out between the frame and spring, back in, and the mounts/tailpipes are about an inch from stock location.He did say " if I could do it again" - but no rattles.

    tight fitting header recommendation

    Our 1962 fenderwells, we just capped the collector, then drilled a 2 1/2 inch ( 3" now)hole on the side of the collector the size exhaust pipe to be used, went sorta straight in and hung about 90* ish to the mufflers. At strip just undid 3 bolts, put on extensions and threw the cap in the...

    Tailpipe opinion

    Out the proper tips to keep that distinctive Mopar sound. If you don't get the exhaust past the rear bumper, your going to wonder why there are little black acid pits in the chrome of the bumper, that needs wiping off after every drive. jmo

    I have had the pleasure of installing lotsa headers, I can tell you the ****-faced grin on every face that came back after a test drive, never complained once . Then they open the headers, and the grin gets huge .

    Shorty Headers

    If engine access is you're concern, what's to access down the side of the block below the ports, with shorties winding back and forth you can't even see the side of the block. People act like you take headers off every week. I raced for years, took heads off over the fender, loose headers, long...

    This is a previous post of mine. Novices can have a challenge putting long tubes in, but seldom read instructions, - and ***** like you have to take them off every weekend. Doug's 453 on sale.

    No Kinek holds the pkgs on the US side of the border, you skip across the border, pick up pkgs at US warehouse, bring pkgs back to border crossing Customs, go inside, pay taxes, go home. The Seawings shipper is "bonded", picks up in Blaine, brings to Victoria Airport in "bond?", supplies the...
