I don't think you can even buy a header flange kit for that engine. You might try the guys at Inliners International to see if they know of anyone who makes them.

there are company's who can laser cut them for any engine. I'm shure Inliners would know of a company that does it, enough odd inlines hotrodded on that site running headders, sombody's bound to know over there.

My steel supplier could cut the flange if he had the pattern to work with..that can be made from an exhaust manifold gasket or the head or the manifold itself..then one would need the tubes and bag-o-bends to make the header..tha tis how we did it in the old days before factory made headers..

one of those laser metal cutting machines they sell in the back of popular mechanics magazines would likely do the trick for a flange... a JCW make-your-own-header kit would likely supply most if not all the tubing you'd need.

shouldn't this be in general rodding tech or the engine forum?

Get the flange laser cut off a gasket but go SMALL on primary pipe diameter. I'm guessing that old Indian lays down much over 3 and a half - 1 1/2 inch primary would be more than enough.
