About two years ago I installed a Pacesetter header on my B2200. It seems to be very well made with nice bends, a thick head flange and fit very snugly to the block.

Actually that oil pickup doesn't look too bad. I did have a clogged one on my Escort, it was jammed with "coffee grounds" so no holes in the screen were visible, even after soaking in solvent.

Using soft (brass) washers between the stand "fingers" and the engine block will prevent marring the bellhousing mating surface. If a .005" burr is raised on the block, the bellhousing will placed...

Could it have been a defect in the casting discovered at the factory, where it was then repaired by boring to a standard size and a cup plug put in?
Considering it held fine with just a rust plug, I...

Lock washer

The bellhousing I scrapped out had the lockwasher under the pivot ball, and it was a thick, heavy duty one.
I imagine they all are supposed to have one, but you could check the dealer's parts...

I don't have the reference book on hand for the exact CC volume, but those are large chamber heads. They should have hardened exhaust seats though.
