I have a rebuild project in work now, it is a 72 F100. I have a 351W HO and looking for headers. I would like to run a long tube set but past experience in trying this has not been good. The lower frame cross brace gets in the way. Does anyone know of a set that will work without removing the frame brace?

A little about the truck-----It started out in life as a SWB F100 six with auto. The body is straight as a arrow no rust anywhere (texas truck). I have done a frame off, body mounts replaced, added power steering, disc brakes, A/C, and much more to come.---------BobW

You might try a set of "shorty" headers for a late model mustang. Your pipe bender won't have any trouble avoiding the crossmember.

I'm running Mustang shorty headers now, the question is what make/brand of long headers can be used that won't interfer with the lower cross brace?---------BobW

Check out Doug Thorley headers. I put them on my '82 F150 and they fit like a glove. I even replaced my starter without having to loosen the headers.
