    Hello!
    Today we checked fitment of the Headers with the oilline from the pan.
    No chance with this.
    I do not want to ding this header as much as nescessary.
    I bought this 1 7/8 headers about 8 years ago new.
    What to do with ist?
    Rewelding the pipe?
    Thanks for help!

    Yep, I would cut it off high and low and make a new pipe with a bend in it and weld it back in. If you cut it high enough you wont need a sharp bend. Before cutting I would go to an exhaust shop and ask to get a piece of 1 7/8" pipe bent or several with different degrees of bend, then take them home and see what you can make work.

      Might try a low profile fitting. fittings are expensive, I know , but easier than cutting up a header. Ruffcut

      Can't you alter the oil line instead?

      Cut off the oil bung and weld a 90' degree pipe and straight extension with and NTP end so that you can connect to to it with a straight fitting?

        Cap the bung and weld a new forward of the old one. That’s the cheapest and easiest way to solve the problem.

            In this mock-up are there header gaskets on the headers? can't tell , and is that a windage tray I see . I don't see gaskets .gaskets will bring the header out further and gaskets on the pan will bring the pan lower, unless it's a windage tray that does not require a gasket. To be honest I would just crease that tube many Studies have shown on back to back dyno test, creasing a tube shows no loss of horsepower or torque. there are plenty of videos on YouTube showing this. Good luck

              Hello!
              Thanks to you all!
              We tried with Remflex gasket but dosn´t fit.
              In the pictures it is not possible to see the angle the header flange is at the head.
              If I would bend or crease it it will have max. half of the diamter it has now.
              Engine has main girdle and windage. For the moment I don´t want to remove the pan;)
              Will look for a low profile fitting or weld in a new pipe I think.
              Is there any fitting to go for?
              @ Stanton: Do you have a picture with Header?
              Again, thanks to you all!

              I am with Stanton, I have the same set-up with Doug's and have a little more clearance. I am running a 120 degree fitting.

              You realize that bung is the pickup, right ?!?!? Moving it to a new location means re-fabbing the whole pickup assembly as well as modifying baffles etc.. This is NOT and "easy" solution !!!

                Just curious why you do not want to clearance the header if you're willing to cut it and weld it? Looks like it wouldnt need much.
                I had to do my 2" Doug's on the passenger side for the torsion bar and mine are coated. Took a oxy/ac rig heated it up cherry red laid the wrist pin on it gave a few good hits and it looks like it was made that way. Nice radiused relief.

                If dinging the header a 1/4" or so makes it work ding it. Been tests about dinged headers little or no loss in HP unless you really close a tube. MO.

                1/4 would not be enough.
                Took a few more pictures.
                Header is in correct position

                No dinging that. What about sandwiching in a bare 3/8" header flange with a gasket on each side. Could cause fit problem else where. Not the best way to solve it.

                  Wasn’t aware that is a pick up point, thought it was a drain back.
