Oh, ok.
As far as length, I can figure that out. Do you think the hardware is the same?
Can you snap a pic of what you do have?

Mine are tapered on one end to fit the firewall.

If you want I can measure one, to give you a idea.

I am missing one important part so far and that is the steel hood latch piece that the release assembly is put together on. I have all the hardware but dont have the square tubing. If anyone can get me some measurements on this I would be most grateful.

Thx for having interest.

Rodnit You got 'er Mike. Let the work begin....

I would get you those measurements if I wasn't for the most part bound to my easy chair due to a pinched nerve in my neck. Which reminds me, time for more traction....

the beginning

I think I did this correct. Here are a couple pics of its current condition.

Again I would like to know if any on has an idea on how to get a template or measurements for the hood latch?
Thx in advance for any help.

Rodnit Mike, looking forward to pix. You an either use a pic hosting site like Photobucket and upload the IMG file from the pix you transfer from your computer, that's what I mainly do. Or, when you create post, hit the Go Advanced button, then Manage Attachments and upload a pic from your computer like my example in this post.

Look forward to seeing it!

Too Many Projects Look into Sanderson headers. The collector flange on the block huggers is very tight to steering components and engine mounts.

Scroll down to the bottom of the page for a drawing of the actual shorty header. This one is supposed to be good to 425hp.

headers

I found on my 34 that the block hugger type headers that dump straight down were the only ones that provide me with adequate ground clearance. The headers that dump to the rear would make the collectors the lowest point on the vehicle.

Rodnit They join straight down below the 2 center pipes which is behind the motor mounts. You can sorta see the one bolt in the pic. The other side is just in front of the starter......

do the 4 pipes join together by the motor mount or down and back by the ttrans or starter

daves 34 Can any one tell me the name of the headers used on the 1934 ford 3 window coupe street beast, I am looking for headers that has the collector down by the trans .
I have a chevy small block and want to build a 383 stroker but feel the headers that are on the car would not be as good.
Thank you
not sure if I put this in the right place in street beast lounge
