    Getting read to install Hedman shorty headers on my 71 charger w383 and 906 heads. What is the best/easiest tool you can buy to remove the stock exhaust manifold studs from the heads? I've already read about heating the studs up with a torch beforehand so I'll be doing that as well.

    Put 2 nuts on the stud, tighten them so the are together, and unscrew the stud it from the head using the inside nut. Very easy to do.

    Probably a good idea to drain your radiator a little as some studs are into the water jackets on those heads.

      Many types out there.

      I like this style. The more pressure the tighter it grips.

            I'll end up posting what method and tools I use to get the studs out.

            Yes I have power steering and I expect to run into problems because of that.

            Give those studs a few good whacks with a good sized hammer, right on the end-cold.

              why are you removing the studs? I find them helpful when installing headers.... You will need a hammer to "adjust" the header tube with power steering, not so much with a 440 as a 383. FYI

              I was able to use the studs in our 66 383. I bought stainless nuts and lock washers for all studs. Instructions listed to remove the left front two studs for installation. Would not move at all!!! Tried all tricks listed!!
