I'm still unsure of which headers I like.  I currently have Hookers, but they are old, one of the pipes is loose, and the driver's side hangs lower.  I looked at the Thorley Tri-Y's but I don't think I like the way they look. Besides, what is the advantage? I have a 69 Z (non- p.s.), and everthing under the hood looks original except for the headers.  Let's keep the topic going, and if you guys have pictures with the same application please post them.

FirstGenAddict -

In your photo,



Where is the white-striped vacuum hose from the choke pull-off diaphragm going - is it connected to something? Can't tell from the photo.

My vacuum hose comes off the dist into a metal tube then back into the white striped hose and then into the carb.

I don't think so - the only manifold vacuum source on a 4053 (other than the large PCV port) is a nipple at the front of the baseplate (which is where the hose from the choke pull-off diaphragm was connected on a stock setup), but I don't see anything at the front of the baseplate.

John,
It and the distributor are T'd to the baseplate under the front fuel bowl.  The T is not really a T it has 2 legs off of the same side and the hose that goes to the baseplate is hidden as it is running parallel to the hose going to the dashpot.

If you see in the picture, the 480 is not even in the car, there is an old cast iron distributor that I welded a stud to the shaft in order to spin oil pumps to prime the engine.

OK, thanks - couldn't see the hose routing in the photo.
