Tight Tuck headers Patriot

Anyone used this style header? Looking to get the most steering shaft room available.

Before I'd pay money for a fosdick unit like that, I'd hunt around in the boneyards for some stock cast iron exhaust manifolds that exited the pipe where I wanted it. Those Patriot units won't make any horsepower and neither will cast iron manifolds, so you may as well do it the cheapest way.

Patriot H5062 headers

OK so I bought the Patriot H8062 headers and I really like them!!! Love the room for the spark plugs.. BUT, they come out too far from the block. The exhaust pipe will be difficult to run by the steering rod. On to the next set...

That side shot shows the flange several inches above the frame rail, running exhaust should be no problem IMO.

The exhaust would be no problem but it will be directly in the way of the steering shaft. I sent them back and looking for a good block hugger header.

Here's a set of Sanderson CC5's that were in a '32 Ford, they should fit your application. It's a picture of a picture, kinda crappy but you get the idea.

I got my headers from Speedway - they called them tight-fit. Mine are for 'D' port heads, but they have the same headers for regular port SBC heads.

Bought a set of Sanderson CC-1 block huggers. Looks like they will work! Plus there's room for the plug wire boots.
