      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

'57 Ford headers

2 posts in this topic

Does anybody know of a set of headers that will work on the new Revell '57 Ford kit?? I'm building a gasser and I need a set of headers, stock manifolds just won't cut it.

Thanks

The Ford Y-block has exhaust port spacing very similar to the smallblock Chevy, and Pontiac and Olds first gen OHV V8 engines...BUT Y-block headers often go up-and-back, because of the locations of the spark plugs in the heads. Like this...and a similar set is in the AMT '56 Ford.

But you also see them like this, so little Chevy headers can be made to work.
