Sanderson's  patented flange design requires no gasketsThe FF390 header fits big block Ford FE engines in 1960-64 Ford and Mercury full size cars, including Ford Galaxie, Mercury Meteor, Mercury Monterey, and Lincoln Continental. Does NOT fit MEL engines.

NOTES:

  1. Installation requires disconnecting the passenger side idler arm and the power steering slave unit (if so equipped) to make room for the header to under chassis exhaust hookup. Reconnect these components according to factory recommended procedure following header installation.
  2. If your application has the larger Ford "coffee can" starter (common on convertibles but found on other applications as well), or other larger or incompatibly clocked starter you will need to change to a normal size or preferrably a mini-starter. The Powermaster #9606 or RobbMC #3001 mini starters are recommended replacements.

Comes with all hardware necessary for installation.

    Will these headers fit a 64 Thunderbird. With stock engine and shock towers?

    No, wrong part number. Use part #FF394

    Do you have a shorty header that fits a 1968 Ranchero GT 390 FE engine with 14 bolt exhaust pattern?

    Unfortunately, no. The Ranchero is based on the Fairlane chassis and there simply isn't enough room on applications that retain the original shock towers.

    Will these work on a 1967 galaxie 390 motor with stock heads?

    Answering a question with a question. What does it state in the product details?

    The FF390 specifically states that it fits 1960-1964 full size Ford applications. Therefore, a 1967 model Galaxie is not within that year range. However, the correct header for a 1967 Galaxie would be part #FF391. The cylinder heads are not an issue. https://www.sandersonheaders.com/sanderson-ff391-header-set-for-ford-fe-engines.html

    I am building a 69 390 with C8ae-H heads but in the future I may build aluminum heads with the CJ bolt pattern. If I buy the CJ pattern headers will they bolt to the 8 bolt pattern now?

    Do you have something that fits a 1964 ford fairlane with a 427 FE big block. Shick towers are taken out because solid axle gasser stile has been put in.

    We would need to see pictures of the application, showing the available space in the engine bay. Please create a support ticket on our Helpdesk, attaching images for our staff to review.

GENERAL NOTES:

  1. The Patented Leak-Free Design that Sanderson Headers offer you is the only leak-free flange design on the market ... Do Not Attempt To Use Flange Gaskets! The raised flange on the Sanderson Headers will buckle the gasket during tightening and actually cause a leak!
  2. Sanderson Headers are NOT emissions legal on pollution-controlled motor vehicles. It is the purchaser's responsibility to verify local regulations for compliance.
  3. Wrapping your Sanderson Headers with ANY thermal tape voids your header warranty. The best thermal protection for your headers is our Aluminized Ceramic Coating that is available for every Sanderson Header.

In keeping with this, we warrant and will repair or replace, at our option after inspection in our facility, any of our products which are found by us to have failed due to defects in either material or workmanship.  This warranty is activated by the return of the Warranty Card enclosed with every pair of headers, and is effective for FIVE YEARS * from the date of purchase as indicated on the original invoice.

This Warranty does not cover products that fail due to improper motor tuning, alteration, disassembly, or damage caused by racing, misuse, neglect, abuse, improper installation and/or accident, or when used on applications for which they were not designed or approved.
