Headers

Can someone offer some advice on headers?
I have a 69 Camaro 350 / 350 turbo, A/C and power steering.
I am trying to find a set of headers that will fit!
I purchased a set of hooker 2451 ceramic-coated headers that were supposed to fit.
The problem I have is with the power steering pump. One of the collector tubes is hitting the pump. The stock power steering gearbox has been replaced with a new AGR power steering box. The original box was not a close ratio and the replacement look identical in size. After talking to Summit tech support, they canít seem to find the problem. They are suggesting I try a different manufacture, they have suggested a headmen elite 68278
Has any one run into this problem and can you offer any suggestion for a sure fit?

Thanks,
Wayne

Smile Re: Headers

My Hooker Competition Headers - fit fine. You must have the wrong engine mounts and frame mounts. The frame mounts are 302/350 frame mounts. NOT just small block mounts. Those are usually the 307/327 mounts. My Engine mounts are Energy suspension "tall and narrow" poly mounts. Good Luck !




69 Camaro -originally a LM1 car. 327, Edelbrock E-streets, hooker, DUI performance distributors, ultradyne cam, stewart, TRW etc. Vintage Air, AGR steering, Corbeau GTSII seats, 700R4 transmission, 12-bolt w/Eaton 4.11:1

Re: Headers

I've had 2 sets of 2451's on mine, with more clearance than the pics above shows, on 327 mounts and frame stands.

Re: Headers

I have the same setup as you except I have a 4 speed. I talked with the guys at Summit and Jegs and they both said the same thing. Hooker comps or super comps. I went with the comps and they fit great.

Did you mean the header is hitting the pump or the box? I have the exact same as you, 69, 350, TH350, hooker ceramic headers, PS AGR box, and A/C. No issues with the pump hitting them and the box is close but not hitting. Some guys have ground a little off of the box cap to give clearance. Check which mounts/stands you have.

Re: Headers

I ran into this issue yrs ago..like the guys say above , most proberly a mounts /stand issue....and or maybe trans mount...these also come in different heights...dizzy /firewall issues

You could look into making up a spacer plate 2 to 5mm for under the stand, and use longer mounting bolts.

My Spelling is not incorrect...it is creative

Re: Headers

Does anyone know if these 2451 headers will fit angle plug heads? Hooker says "no" in their footnotes. I have Pro Topline angle plug heads and I am looking for some good fitting headers.(69 coupe, PS, PB, 4sp, Vintage Air AC).
Thanks,
John
