Those headers on my truck were pretty crude. The intake and headers were made in autoshop class by my brother and his friend (it was his friends truck that I bought after he grew out of it with a new Monte Carlo in 1972). They were brazed together and literally had a bolt laying across a bridge of brass to fill a large gap in the "Y".

These are the set I made for it out of my friends discarded 340 Duster headers when I was in high school. A little better but still funky.

Yep, but it is a damn side better "sickness" than a lot of sicknesses we could have.

MARTINSR I may just pickup an old Rochester and some tubing and make a manifold like the one on my truck when I bought it and hang that on the wall with the velocity stack on it. Now THAT would be cool.

starnest I don't listen to the "voices" anymore, after all they never listened to me.

deadbodyman What are the voices telling you to do ??????

MARTINSR My rule is simple, if it's hanging on the wall, it's art.

starnest "hang it by a hook on a nail"

Does that mean the stuff hanging on the wall in my garage is art?

That's what I tell my wife about all of the old girlie calendars I leave hanging on the wall. "It's art Baby!"

Not that she's buying that, she's just better at picking her battles than me. I fight for the calendars, she fights for more money.

Might need the digital converter box to make it work.

I was just going to hang it by a hook on a nail, damn now you are putting all this pressure on me and I'll have to come up with something else.

It would have to be on a rochester and I would have to drill out more holes for the accelerator pump like my brother did back in high school when he made this intake manifold. I wish I knew where this thing was so I could hang the whole thing up on the wall!
