    Just a thought, When I had a 460 in my Bonneville car I found one header bolt impossably close to the tube. I had to make an aluminum flange to bolt to the head, with a counter sunk screw that I ground to match the port, and a new bolt hole 1/2 inch out from the tube. Then I made my flanges to fit that. Common deal on race motors.

    Just purchased a '52 Special, need to build headers! How is the Buick I-8 project coming along?

    Thanks!

    Ok, here's the skinny. The gasket is in three pieces. So unless I can come up with a cylinder head, the flange will be three pieces. Will that be a problem?

    Not sure what size U are looking for on the Straight 8 (248,263, or 320). But I have an extra 248 I am not going to do anything w/. If that is the size let me know, I am in Lombard once a week so it shouldn't be an issue to drop it off @ the shop. To my knowledge the 248 and 263 should be using the same head. Feel free to shoot me a PM on the Czar Board (username rusty)

    Sure, drop it off. The 248 & 263 use the same gaskets at least. We can dimension right off the head and offer it in a single flange instead of three pieces.

    The manifolds are actually 8 separate flanges for the exhaust and 4 flanges in between for the intake, that's why I wanted separate flanges...

    From the gaskets, there aren't enough holes for eight separate flanges. Each gasket (there are three) has four ports and four bolt holes. I suppose you could cut through each bolt location and separate them that way. But three of the ports would then only be held down by a bolt on one side (unless there is a dog on the outside of those two.)

    8Straight8 is dropping off a head as some point. So you guys need to decide if you want the three flange dealo or one continuous flange that you can cut up.

    In my trunk and will be drop off @ lunchtime. I know exactly what both Kevin and GRT8 are saying. I think Kevin will get a good idea of the engineering when he sees the head. If he can some how make a single flange for the exhaust, well then that just saves time. The easiest way would be to have a 6 piece flange kit. As for 8 seperate pieces that is just extra work for everyone.

    I can get the gasket for that one, or you could bring me a head or exhaust manifold. Anyone else looking for this one?

    Also, a couple of things for all you guys:

    1. Anyone interested in the Buick 320 flange?

    2. If you pre-order flanges and are coming to the Pile Up, no freight. Just pre-order, pre-pay, and pick them up at the booth. :)

    Remember everyone, get your orders in now if you want to pick them up at the Pile Up instead of paying OPEC's freight charges.

    FYI, we will have some shirts with the Victory Header Flanges logo for sale at the Pileup.

    It's not too late to place your order for flanges and pick them up at the Pileup as well.
