Headers for a Model T

Post by TRDxB2 » Thu Apr 23, 2020 3:01 pm

I started this thread as, suggested, a continuation of one in Classifieds for a WTB 4 in 1 Header. That discussion lead to the following bits of information
-Red's Headers made and offered a header for Model T's at one time, but the demand was low and they quit making and stocking them.
-Red's is still listing a Model A header on their website. http://reds-headers.net/index.php?main_ ... cts_id=145
-Since there is an adapter plate for using Model A intake & exhaust manifolds on a T, is there a way for Red's header to work or be modified to?
-Any header make for a Model A should work, especially id the adapter plate that is sold by vendors to adapt a Model A intake and exhaust is used between the block and header flange.
-I have the Red's model A header hanging in my shop. I will mock it up on my speedster frame and take a couple pics. Would you guys rather start a new thread out of the classifieds? I don't like the idea of a adaptor. There are enough gaskets and such in that area without one.
So I started one....

so here is my driveshaft style header on my fordor. There was a fellow making these on the HAMB forum, but he quit the header business. I am building the race style body speedster using Dave Currier's body. I haven't decided which way to go with the exhaust yet. Good timing for this thread.

Here is a video on YouTube making a header - very applicable. It begins with an ad - then a few seconds of dark screen

From the WTB post
Kim, I have a header that came off a Model T speedster project that I sold.
Kim, found how to post photos. See attached header.
Hope you are another party can use it.

Peter, I love the look of your header. I was wanting to run mine under the body in a somewhat original path. Your header would also work for me as it could run under the passenger side splash apron. I have functioning doors on my roadsters tub that I am using as part of my "speedster" project.
