What's in the Box

Info

These headers are designed to fit 1953-1964 Ford F100 pick-ups with a Ford 272-312 Y-block engine. 1-1/2" primaries and 3" collectors. 

Application

These headers fit 1953-1964 Ford pickups with a 272-312 Y-block engine.

Notes

Header design will require the conversion to a spin-on oil filter assembly as the original canister type oil filter assembly will not clear the header.

Quality Headers, But Not As Advertised

April 09, 2016
These are quality headers, good welds and perfect fit. But the headers are shipped with a black coating that must first be removed before applying a high temperature header paint. They are not natural as indicated in the description.
Pros:
  • Quality Welds
  • Good Fitment
Cons:
  • Not Natural Steel
Yes, I recommend this product.

Best exhaust option for a Y-Block

April 05, 2016
I have installed 3 sets of these headers on my 3 pickups, ranging from 1956-1961 and they always fit just right clearing everything. By far the best Y-Block exhaust option for the money.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I was skeptical that these would work for me

October 21, 2015
The driver side didn't look like it was going to be easy to install. That side was as easy to line up all the bolts as the passenger side was. I got the bolt into the hole closest to the firewall and pushed the front down and installed the front bolt. It was very easy to do. Everything lined up well after that. These look good installed and they perform very well too. I thought they were priced right. They were in stock and I had them before I thought I would. I'm glad that I bought them.
Pros:
  • Easy Installation
  • all parts included
  • Attractive Product
Yes, I recommend this product.

Reasonable for the price

June 16, 2012
These required some adjustments to the inner fender well to make fit. Overall quality seems good, but the welds around the flange seem a little cheap (from the outside there are gaps that are hard to paint in, which may rust later). The flange fit to the head was a bit snug and took a lot of work to get all the bolts lined up and threaded in.
Pros:
  • Cheapest I could find
  • Comes with reducer
Yes, I recommend this product.

Will these headers clear the steering box on the steering column and the oil filter? It looks like it might be difficult to change the oil filter with these headers. My pickup has a 292 y block.

Yes and no. The headers fit well and clear all other components, however the canister style original oil filter cannot be removed from the chassis after being removed from the motor. A spin on modern oil filter conversion is required

Yes these headers will clear the steering box and column on 1953 to 1964 F100. Changing the oil filter will be more difficult but is certainly do-able.

When using these headers with the parallel leaf springs (even drop springs) setting under the frame rails clearance to the headers should not be an issue.

These headers are designed to fit the 1953 to 64 Ford F100 pickups and should also work on the ¾ and 1 ton applications. For verification you can take some basic dimensions for comparison. * A = 5" - From head surface at flange to the outermost part of the header tubes. * B = 19" - Top of header flange to lowest point of header tubes. * C = 30" - Front of header flange to farthest point rearward at collector.

These headers p/n 9308422 are designed to fit 1953-64 Ford F100 pick-ups with a 272-312 Y-block engine. They feature an offset bolt hole on the outside end tubes to match the cylinder head bolt pattern. They have 1-5/8" primaries and 3" collectors and the set comes with bolts, gaskets, and reducers. The reducers are 3" at the inlet end, 2-1/4" OD at the outlet end.

* These headers do not carry any notation or warning pertaining to the stock 3 speed column mount linkage and from the photo the configuration tends to confirm that they should clear. Some dimensions to work with for fit verification is as follows: A = 5" - From head surface at flange to the outermost part of the header tubes. * B = 19" - Top of header flange to lowest point of header tubes. * C = 30" - Front of header flange to farthest point rearward at collector. For further specifications and fit verification you may want to check with Pertronix (manufacturer) direct.

3 Bolt flange compatability For my 63' F100 the headers are good for OEM replacement, but finding piping after the headers is a pain. What dimensions do I need in order to find piping that will bolt up to the rectangular flange? This is putting a hault on my checkout process. Recommendations?

You can use reducers such as 91013751 or if you want 3" exhaust and mufflers simply weld a collector ring such as 91013370 to the 3" tubing.
