hooker headers
#1
73 mach 1 351c 2v, c-6 auto. this is the second set of headers. first set was dougs and they hit the clam shell motor mounts on both sides. I have since changed the motor mounts and frame brackets to the 71-72 ones. just installed the hooker headers, pass side is so close to the trans pan that it can not be removed and collector is too close to trans causing excess heat to the trans. only thing I know to do is 1 heat the tubes and pull the collector over, 2 cut the collector off at a small angle turn it 180 and reweld it back on, 3 send headers back and put manifolds back on. if car had c-4, fmx, or 4 speed it would not be a problem. any one have suggestions ?

Buy the headman headers they do not curve back in toward the trans like the hookers.

Can you insulate the headers where it is close to the trans, or insulate the area of the pan that faces the header? There are several commercial options out there that may work.
I had a set of Hookers with my C6 and did not have issues, but they were ceramic coated.

4 - put a 6 foot long pipe into the collector and pull toward the passenger side.

FWIW, I ran the Hookers in a 70 Torino with a 351-4V/C-6. Did not have any heat related issues from the headers being so close. I grenaded one of the sun gears and getting it out was a trick, but with a little pipe persuasion it slid right out.

call headman headers, they do not list anything with the 351c, c-6 trans combo

For some reason headman lists C4 only. That is not the case, they fit with C6, FMX, and my T5.
