does anyone know if anyone makes fenderwell headers for an Anglia with a sbc?
I'm doing a Henry J , and found headers for a chevy v8/toyota land cruiser conversion (google it) there is a company that markets them both plain or chrome (something adapt) the collectors dump about 3 " behind rear of block almost @ crank centerline I'll attach 2/3 pics these may help Regards JT
Try Stahl headers York Pa.
Great info... My question.. do these clear the Original Body mounts? also the front tire size on yours what is it?
When I was running SB Chevy's years ago, I used 55 to 57 Chevy style fender-well headers, the pipes all went towards the middle like block hugger headers except strait out then about a 45 degree turn down, worked well in a 38 Ford and other cars. David.
Not a Anglia, but very similar. My Austin with 327 SBC is running Patriot Fat Fender Chevy headers. They sit right in my lower fender drops, and work well. Whether they'll work for your Anglia depends on where your engine sits. Mine's back pretty far, but the distributor is just under the cowl.
Check out some pictures of up-sweep dragster headers. I used them up-side down on my car. There is a picture here . Check out '40 Ford F.E. thread. Gene.
I just bought a set... a Month later.. finally got.. I will have to set the engine back quite far.. so the Dumps clear the tires.. a 1/2 inch on the pass side. 3 inch clearance on the drivers when wheels are straight. crap.. 500.00 later.. and will have to move the firewall back... Not looking forward to this.
There are so many ways to mount the engine, I don't see how anyone could guarantee their headers would fit.
As an example my engine is 19" crank centerline in front and the transmission tailshaft is 16". Engine is offset 1" to the right of centerline. I couldn't find any to fit, so I built some. Now I decided to drop the engine some, so I've got to start all over.
Ill take this a a live and learn.. I know S#@t happens..
I bought a new pair of these http://www.speedwaymotors.com/Dynat...5-8-1-3-4-Primary-3-Inch-Collector,48678.html for 50 bucks at a swap meet. I then made new top tubes near the flange to fit my car.
yeah but what about a big block?
If you have a BBC powered Anglia you might try the Speedway BBC Tri 5 fenderwell headers for $219. Even if you had to rework them a little, the starting price is so cheap they're worth it. I'd guess they'll be a tad too wide, and need narrowing to fit an Anglia.
If this helps for the big block question, a couple pictures to see how the tubes lay out on those Speedway ones.
