Clark - I have a feeling that you will be hard pressed to find a long tube set of headers on this combination. With the motor mount in the center of the engine, the X member across the chassis, a below the floor master cylinder(assumed), a wide transmission just work against doing that without building them yourself. I ended up with the fourth different set of headers (Summit and I got on a first name basis on that exercise ) which were Sanderson's. And they were the shorty block huggers. I didn't want that brand and I wanted long ones as well. My steering - it's close, but with u-joints and a stand off bearing, it works. And my '31 has a much tighter chassis.
