302 headers with manual trans
#1
New to this forum and thank you all in advance for your help. I have a '73 convertible with a 302 and a 3 speed stick. Here is my problem. I've installed aftermarket SpeedPro/ ProComp aluminum heads and I want to keep the z-bar for the clutch. I've looked many places and ordered two sets of shorty headers that don't even come close to fitting. I have to think I'm not the first one to run into this problem. Anyone else had this problem and how did you get it resolved?

these say they work with a standard trans.

And welcome from Iowa.

'73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.

'73 F code convertible. Bright red. Needs total restore. (IE HOT MESS)

I believe that those were the first ones I tried. The aluminum heads have higher exhaust ports and these run smack into the middle of the bar.

You might try FPA, they have headers for Yates high port 302 heads.

Running the repop tri-y headers, clears the Z-bar just fine.

On a 302 with aftermarket heads?

302 with stock heads. Clears everything by a mile.

I tried a couple of different headers for my 5.0 with Ford gt40 heads with no luck.  The ports were always to small on the headers.  I kept the JBA 1650SJS headers and installed a hydraulic system.
