    So I found an easy way to remove old rusty rotted out headers. IMG_0098.jpg I tried removing them the traditional way but 50 years of rust made it impossible.

      I do it the same way, rusty or not. :)

      Never buying a car with them on it prevents this though.

          And it's a lot easier to throw them away that way LOL... Or maybe sell them on eBay as a kit .

            I had to do that on the side of the road with a regular hack saw about 20 years ago. I had to scrounge a nearby junkyard to find a drivers side A body manifold, just to get back home!

                299FD961-A507-4589-A0BF-B4A246CEEA6B.png That method works well I admit. I have found though on the dart if you take them out in one piece you are completely ready for reinstallation. However I have employed the use of this instrument on occasion and found it to be very helpful.
