My buddy is looking for a pair of FE headers for a 1973 Camper Special, 2 wheel drive.. I think Hedman used to make some.

Thx

Don't have any to sell, but the cheap Flowtech ones from Summit work fine.
Had them on my truck 3 years now, no major issues.

here, these are them, and my truck is 2wd.

No major issue installing them, required a touch of grinding on the engine crossmember driverside (like 1/8 of an inch)

FE Headers Wanted Empty Camper Special

Post  747JetMech December 3rd 2013, 4:17 pm

Did you install them on a Camper Special? Footnote 29 said they will not fit up to a 72.. The gas tank is on the side and not in back cab. I wonder what the difference is in a 72 camper special and 73?

Thx

If you are asking me... No I didn't install them on a camper special. I don't see how that option would make it different tho. Best I can remember on all of them I've worked on or owned, all 73-77 2wd F-series are pretty much the same.
My truck is a 76 F100 390fe, c6, manual brakes, power steering.

Complaints and notes about the header I linked:
-Cannot install with starter in place
-Cannot remove a c6 without disconnecting one of the headers (driverside is easiest) The flanges get in the way of the bellhousing sliding out.
-Flanges point directly at trans cross member
