Headers for 62 Chrysler
« on: September 12, 2008, 04:48:05 AM »

Hi everyone - I'm new here and was hoping one of you may be able to help me out.  I'm wondering what headers will fit a B or RB engine in a 62 Newport/300?   It currently has a 383 out of a 68 model car with factory 62 383 log manifolds.  I am clueless as to what will or won't fit, and also why they will or won't fit, so any help is appeciated.  Yes, I'm a newbie.

Mmmmm...  fresh meat!  ER UMM...  Welcome to Fins Tony!   I't good to have you here!
 
Herman (BigBlockMopar) is using a set of Hedman headers on his awesome 1960 NYer.  Here's a link to his car's progress.

The engine pics start on page 6 or 7, have a look-see!  You'll be glad you did   Polaraco (The big cheez) will be back tonight.  He has a lot of experience with '62 Chryslers.
 
Again, WELCOME!

I dare say the Shumacher Tri-Y's would fit too but are a lot more expensive then the Hedmans.

Howdy Butch - Sold the 4 door to a guy from Australia and he's currently running it in Hot Rod Drag week.   I have my eye on a 62 Newport (always love the 62 300, but a Newport will do just fine).   I want to put a nice stroker in it but was hoping not to spend 1500 on custom headers.  Don't know if the little block huggers or tri-ys will do it.  Then again, my 4 door is running HP manifolds and has gone 11.50's.  If the Newport is really 3800lbs as I have heard, that is only a couple hundred pounds heavier than my 63 4 door.  Maybe the shorties will be OK?  Hows the hemifury doing these days?  Man I love that car!

Tony - welcome!
 
Where did you find big-block shortys?  I found a set once but cannot remember.
 
You asked about the fit problems.  As I understand it you can put almost any B/RB header on the passenger side.  The problem with the early Chryslers is the clearance between the steering box and the brake lines on the driver's side. 
 
I saw that some sites were recommended.  I also know that a good muffler man can build you a set of custom headers - my guy here in the Bake can do it.  Corey (Stinger) put a set on his Fury, but his car is a fusey.
 
Good luck!

The headers used on the 1960 New Yorker in the link above is Hooker HED 78070.   They are shorties.  They have got to be better than any exhaust manifold, but still it would be nice to have a full length header that would  fit without major modifications.   If the only restriction on the drivers side is the brake lines, I would think the lines could be relocated, no??  I wonder if A body TTI's would work?  They hug the block pretty close.    I know they can be custom made, but its big bucks around here.  1500 and up.

Sold it already!   Didn't even get to see it finished!

Fury's doing fine, even better with some upgrades....a pleasure to drive finally.

Sounds like you've got something fun in the works again!    I like your style!

Thanks, I will take a look at those Hookers.
 
It's not just the brake lines, but the steering box too.

I was removing the DS exhaust manifold from the 62 Newport I'm junking the other day....the steering box is real close to the firewall, so they used a center dump ram's horn style manifold there. Any custom header would have to wind it's way around this obstruction, then it's clear sailing underneath.....

The 78070's are  a center dump with a slight  angle at the bottom.

Thanks for the link, Butch.  Those are pretty small for headers, but probably a good compromise between power, affordability and simplicity.  Problem is I like lots of power, always spend too much money and tend to do things the hard way...

I shoulda known!  LOL!

I know Herman used some full length Hookers one one of his & if I remember he had to modify a tube or 2?    Might have to do something like that to get up around a 2" primary.
