Question Headers

I am looking for a company that builds shorty headers for a 49 Ford F-1 pick-up with a 302 V-8 motor. I've read a few horror stories about Sanderson Headers and was wondering if there was someone else that mad a shorty header for this application. If I must use Sanderson I guess I'll have to take the chance. My truck is stock except for the motor, tranny, and rear end.

Do you have to run shortys? If not, why don't you run a full length header.

Call the techs at PAW, Summit, or JEGs. They should be able to get you a part number.

You have all kinds of room around your frame of that truck...........most any SB Ford header should fit. A shorty header tends to hug the block which makes it even easier.

I have had good luck with Sanderson's

I installed the shorty headers on my 53 chevy 350sbc and had no trouble, what kind of story's have you heard?? I wanted to maintain the stock front suspension with stock stearing components and it wok's just fine!!

Ford Racing makes good headers that should work.

The only thing that may cause you problems is if you're engine is offset. I have a 302 in my 48 and my buddy has one in his 51. My headers fit perfectly, he can't use headers at all. He had to offset his engine to clear the steering gear.

Best regards
