226 flat 6 Ford cast iron headers

WTB a set of cast iron headers for the 226 flat 6 in my 51 biz coupe.


Not sure if these headers for a passenger car will work in a PU,or vice versa.


Would also like to buy 3x1 carb linkages.

Re: 51 v-8 water pump shaft bushing problems

Is this for a 51 passenger car fan spindle,or a water pump? I ask because I need to replace the bearing,and maybe the shaft in my fan housing,not either of my water pumps.


I mentioned water pump...

Re: 51 v-8 water pump shaft bushing problems

Thanks,but the water pumps have nothing to do with the fan blade in 51 cars. Uses a separate belt.
