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......

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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....

I have mine out of car, they are in the trunk, easy to measure but I have a earlier model and I don't know if they would be the same.

Mine are tapered on one end to fit the firewall.

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

Bob

That would be great. Mine is also an early model (1992).
Pics would also be beneficial. If it's easier you can email them to me. emeraldlawncarestl@gmail.com

Thx a bunch

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?

brake pedal

1934 street beast brake pedal, as most of you know there is not a lot of foot room, I took my dremmel tool and cut the pedal shorter on each side to fit a VW beetle barake pedal, this added a lot of room for me as my console sits on the tunnel.

I hope this ends up in the Styreet Beast Lounge.

Even with just the tunnel without a console, the gas pedal sits close on the right side. I'd almost be afraid of the pedal getting hung up on the side of the console. Does your foot hit the console when you step on the pedal?

Before I had to drive with my left foot up and on the brake pedal with out pushing down on it when I drive, I could not get my right foot up off the gass with out getting stuck under the brake pedal so I had to drive with both feet, now I have enough room to drive normal or as normal as I can, hee hee
