Question Sanderson header collectors

Scored a great deal on a set of Sandersons for my Ford powered deuce on e-bay without collectors. Went to the local speed shop to pick up collectors only to find out that Sanderson collectors are 2 1/4 inches and the common sizes are 2 1/2 ,3 and 3 1/2 inches. Sanderson claims they are 2 1/2 but nothing matches. Building on a budget so $65.00 us plus shipping is alot. Anyone else run into this problem? Roger

I have a set of Sanderson Headers on my hot rod, and I have measured the collector with a set of calipers and they are definatly 2 1/2 inches. I have the block huggers on a 327 Chevy.

When the headers were bought, at the same time I purchased an L shapped pipe that went from the headers to the rest of the exhaust system. You could probably order those from Sanderson, and save yourself a lot of trouble. Their headers are pictured on their web site, so you might be able to identify what you have that way. Also, you can save yourself some grief by using the soft aluminum flange gaskets. They last much longer than the paper type.

Do yourself a very big favor and cut off the three bolt header/collector flange and then have a head pipe welded on that will slip fit over the exhaust pipe. I have had numerous "Sanderson" headers and the collecter flanges have been a nightmare to keep sealed. They constantly blow out the collector gasket. By welding the head pipe on and having a slip fitting after the head pipe rearward curve, I solved this problem forever!
