Does anybody have any suggestions for a "NICE" full length header to fit a F,J,M body mopar with either a low deck or RB block? I have a friend putting one together and he is coming up short.

I've seen Hooker Competiton (no "super") 5903 successfully used in that combo before.

A few tubes on them had to be reworked, they definitely weren't a drop in but looked darn close.

Ok, thanks. He also wants to know if there is an easy way to convert the car to manual steering.

TTI fall into place.

Remove the bolts, just about fall out. No torsion bars in the way. You still need to release motor mounts and jack up the motor one side at a time. It is best to have an extra set of hands to hold the header in place while getting a few bolts on. If working alone, they will fall right through to the ground if you lose grip.


Too many cars, too many parts, too little coin, too little space to work in, too little time left to make it all happen! Update: down to one ride, still too many parts, a little more jingle in the pocket, gaining space, and it's going to happen this year!

I used standard Hedman hedders and modified the rear tube on the driver's side. 440 1980 Cordoba LS
