#BBPT-610A BB Pro Tour header for stock chassis, a version can be made for factory AC
$1,750.00 – $3,850.00
This header is available in a 2” or 2 1/8” tube size with a 3 ½” collector. All of the tubes are inside the frame. Our headers are hand made to order, so we can build them for any engine deck height and for any aftermarket cylinder head as long as the engine stays in the stock location. On the ’64 thru ’67 Chevelle chassis, small block frame stands for the front motor mounts are required. We used Prothane polyurethane engine mounts #7-504 to design with. The header will also fit solid motor mounts Moroso #62530.
This header has excellent ground clearance. We used a Milodon low profile 7 quart oil pan #30951 or #30956 to design with and the bottom of the header was ½” higher than the bottom of the pan. These oil pans are made for easy access to the oil filter. They also have a kick out sump which the header has plenty of room for. Measuring from the side of a stock oil pan we have 4” of room on the driver side and on the passenger side we have 2 ¼” at mid pan and 3” at the bottom of the pan. If your oil pan has a driver side pan kicks out under the filter it will make access to the oil filter difficult. With a straight sided oil pan the filter will come out the bottom easily. This header requires a Nippondenso style starter, we used a Power Master #9540 for our design. This header will not fit a Hitachi style mini starter or large GM starter.
The steering column is the big issue with this chassis, but we still have good access the spark plugs. The header is also designed for clutch linkage and a power brake booster. If you are using a Lakewood type scatter shield you will have to slightly trim the outer edge of it under the starter area for header clearance. If your car has factory air conditioning we can make the header for that.
This header will not fit factory type column shifter linkage, it must be a floor shifter.
We offer the Milodon oil pans listed above as well as the Power Master #9540 starters.
Part# BBPT-610 Passenger side, remove the starter, install the header from the bottom. With the header in place but not bolted to the head reinstall the starter, then bolt the header in place.
Part# BBPT-610-A Passenger side header should be installed with the engine.
Driver side is the same for both headers. To install, remove the clutch linkage, oil filter and the bolt that holds the motor mount to the frame stand. You may have to raise the engine about 1”. Install the header from the bottom. When you let the engine back down be sure that engine has centered itself on the frame stands.
