Q & A

What's in the Box

Fenton™ cast iron headers fit most Ford chassis from 1937-48 & 1952-53 with stock steering gear. Includes 5/16" steel collector flanges for exhaust pipe hook-up (for 2.00" O.D. pipe). Also includes gaskets.

Universal Fit for

  • 28-48 Ford cars
  • 52-53 Ford cars
  • Not ideal for 49-51 Ford car with stock steering
  • Some modification/grinding may be required for your application
Gaskets and Flanges Included

Header Dimensions (GIF) 

Application Note: These headers won't fit most Model T's or Model A's due to narrow the frame width, particularly on the passenger side. 1948-52 Ford F1 (1/2 ton) pick-ups will have interference with one bolt on the stock steering box. That bolt can usually be modified so that the headers can be used. The headers will not work in 3/4 ton or larger trucks from 1948-52. Most 1942-48 Mercury cars will require shimming of the motor mount for steering clearance.

Installed these in stock 40 delux coupe without an issue. Routing the exhaust through the frame was difficult on the drivers side. If this car had a Columbia rear end the controls and exhaust would have been an issue.

Do not try to use them on a 1950 Ford Tu

October 04, 2012
I bought these from Speedway instead of the alternative because I did not want to take a chance on having to do a lot of work. I have one full day in it so far. I am 68 years old and have been doing this type of thing for a while. The passengers side is a dream but is 1/2" from the frame at th flange. The drivers side has been on and off 4 times. Grinding the steering box, filing the bolt holes, and cursing. Not worth the time. Gotta be a better way. Still not sure it will clear the string box and very close to the cross member. Try to finish it tomorrow. Painted them first but no good after all the banging and handling. What a joke. Save your money.
Pros:
  • not much.
Cons:
  • way too much work
No, I would not recommend this product.

Fenton Flat Head Header on a 46 Ford Coupe, will it fit? Except for a 4 inch dropped axle and mono leaf springs the 46 is stock Ford. The factory exhaust pipes go from the exhaust manifold back through a port in the frame cross member. Will the Fenton Header route new pipes the same way?? There is no room to go between the frame cross member and stock wish bone and below the wish bone, there is no ground clearance. I'm going to try to see if the dimensions will help, but hopefully you can give an answer. Thanks, Bob

The Fenton headers will not bolt up to the existing exhaust but from notes available they should clear any obstacles and the hook up to the head pipes will be up to the muffler shop to get the correct bends to route the exhaust where you want it to go.

These Fenton headers will have clearance problems on your 53 Mercury if it has stock steering. On the drivers side the collector is 5.88 out from the head and 8.15 down from the top of the flange. The collector is approximately centered between the center tube and the rear tube for comparison to your fit needs. We also have center dump 91013601 and tube headers that may give you a better option.

The Fenton headers number 91013605 have been used on the 28-48 by many. 1936-40 seem to be the best fit and the 35 is close but just to be sure we have some dimensions to compare with your 35 to give a heads up if modifications need to be made. Drivers Side Dimension A : 5.88 " Furthest point out from engine Drivers Side Dimension B : 8.15 " from the top of the flange to the lowest point at the collector Drivers Side Dimension C : 18.25 " from the front flange to the furthest rearward point at the collector. Passenger Side Dimension A : 7.75 " Passenger Side Dimension B : 0.0 " Passenger Side Dimension C : 18.25 "

Should be fine. Depending on what you have now you will surely need to make new header pipe. But that is just a part of your conversion.

The Fenton headers work on many hot rods but in the case of the 34 there are a lot of variables. On the Speedway Motors website under the part number 91013605 click on the first photo to get to the main page and then click the “Specs” tab for dimensions on both driver and passenger side for comparison to your 34 build. They have been used on these without issues but location front to rear along with steering components used needs to be verified.

Part # 91013605 ’48 and earlier commonly require dipstick modification for clearance. The headers will fit the stock steering but we have no information regarding clearance with an upgrade to rack and pinion. Steering component variations are possible and fit would be up to verification by the builder. The dimensions for comparison are as follows: Passenger side A dimension = 7.750", B dimension = Zero and there is no drop, and C = 18.500" Drivers side A dimension = 5.875", B dimension = 8.250" and C = 17"

We are putting 49 motor in a 36 coupe. Will this clear the stock steering box? Do we have to modify the dipstick? We want to run the exhaust through the batery box on the drivers side, does the exhaust on this side dump down or towards the rear of the car

Part number 91013605 These headers fit a lot of applications and in a swap into your 36 coupe you will need to take some measurements to help insure the fit verification. The dipstick on the later model 49 engine should not be an issue but the steering components on the drivers side does create clearance issues depending on engine location front to rear and also the height. These are available dimensions to check against your application. Passenger side A dimension = 7.750", B dimension = Zero and there is no drop, and C = 18.500" Drivers side A dimension = 5.875", B dimension = 8.250" and C = 17" The passenger side points rearward and down slightly.

These cast headers carry several notations but none a direct relation to the ’53 pickup. Below are some notations and some specifications for comparison to your application. Application Note: These headers won't fit most Model T's or Model A's due to narrow the frame width, particularly on the passenger side. The 1948 and earlier engines will require dipstick tube modifications. 1948-52 Ford F1 (1/2 ton) pick-ups will have interference with one bolt on the stock steering box. That bolt can usually be modified so that the headers can be used. The headers will not work in 3/4 ton or larger trucks from 1948-52. Most 1942-48 Mercury cars will require shimming of the motor mount for steering clearance. Passenger side A dimension = 7.750", B dimension = Zero and there is no drop, and C = 18.500" Drivers side A dimension = 5.875", B dimension = 8.250" and C = 17" A is from head surface outward, B is from top of port to bottom of collector, and C is from front of front port flange to rear of collector. Another option would be our center dump headers number 91013601 and dimensions for your comparison are as follows: HEADERS DROP STRAIGHT DOWN APPROX 7.5" AT EXH PORTS, HEADER STICKS OUT APPROX 2.25" AT BOTTOM OF BLOCK, COLLECTOR STICKS OUT APPROX 4.25"

Verification has been confirmed on our Fenton Flathead headers and the dimensions as follows: 91013605-R: A= 7.750", B= 0, C= 18.500"; 91013605-L: A= 5.875", B= 8.250", C= 17.000". These are a cast header and normally there is little to no variance from one shipment to the next.
