If I find a steel pipe fabricator with the right material and tooling I will probably have them redone according to your drawing.
i would recommend that you find someone with a mandrel bender so the pipe doesn’t get necked down on the curves reducing the flow of coolant. I can recommend someone if you cannot find anyone locally.

Hi Guys I don't know if anyone is working in a home garage and is tired of the dust from sanding but I had an idea and went with it , I took wood lathe and 6mil polly, and some EMT (electrical conduit) rolled the lathe and the other side rolled the EMT and duct tape to make a tent that rolls up and down to keep the dust and paint fumes down to a minimum

Different Intake and Exhaust flange thicknesses

The Offenhauser intakes, DP and C, have a thicker flange than does a Hedman header. So that the bolts would tighten both evenly I simply took the oem thick washers and ground down one side to compensate. However, I found that the Clifford intake is the same thickness as the Clifford header flange. You don't need to grand the oem washers to get even torque. But the fitment is poor. There are wide gaps between the two flanges that the oem large washers can't span. I had to back up the oem washers with a large fender washer, grade 8, and drill the hole to match the fastener. I also put a bead of the red, high temp gasket maker around each exhaust port to keep it sealed.

Studs prevent loosening. I used 1.75" grade 8 studs, 3/8 18 into the head, 3/8 24 outside, along with grade 8 crimp nuts and washers. Hillco dot com has them. Ten years running with a Hedman header, studs and the high temp gasket sealer, and never a leak. Tighten half the torque, from the center out in a spiral. Repeat to full torque. Heat to running temp, then retorque, repeat once more and forget about them.
