I am trying to find a set of headers for a 67 with a 350, A/C, 4spd floor shift, and AGR 12:1 power steering box. I have been told that Hooker model # 2451 comp and # 2130 super comp headers will fit. If anyone has installed these on this type of configuration, please let me know how they fit and /or any sugjestions on other headers.

Cool

i had #2130 mounted then used #2451. Both sets worked very well, P/S is bolted to front of the block, no bracket going to exh bolt.
The only two brackets I have is the cradle bolted to the front two bosses, drvr side, berween the water pump and oil pan rail. The second bracket is the adjustable one and it bolts between the eng mount and eng mount bosses, very slick.

A/C, you're on your own, but I would suspect somebody makes a bracket to bolt to exh bolts for holding up compressor.

Personally, I'd go for the 2451, smaller dia for street driving. Maybe copper gaskets to seal flange to header to prevent leaks. With Hooker's, it a full time job to prevent leaks, or repair them I should say.

Question

Thanks for the info. I have no problem with the a/c compressor bracket. I have instructions on how to modify the bracket to fit and there are aftermarket brackets. The p/s pump is mounted as you mentioned, my concern is with the clearance of the Headers to steering box, and headers to a/c evaporator housing assy mounted on the fire wall, and ground clearance. I am leaning towards the 2451 comp (1 5/8 DIA) headers and was concerned with the quality of Hooker headers.

i have a '69 with a/c & power steering and installed the comp hooker headers (coated) with no problem. They cleared the a/c box with no problem and were very close to the power steering box, but did not touch (1/8"?).
Im not sure of the model no., but i think it was the 2451.
The drivers side collector hangs a bit lower than the passengers, so if you have your car lowered, you may be in trouble. I have new springs with koni shocks and have no problem now.

hope this helps,
mike
