I would like to run headers on my 65 comet. It is a 4 speed car with power steering. What header will work? Not much room. Aloha Ed

Lots a stuff in driveline on brakes, your V 8 spindles are great same as Mustang. Early Kelsey/Hayes disc brake stuff is good, cheap, are widely available.
Use a 15/16s bore master cylinder and power booster not needed. Lots a guys here have used this combination including me.

A lot of guys use the CSRP conversion kits:

Life is much easier if you install an export brace to replace the shock tower braces. Gives a lot more room for the MC/booster. Also makes general engine access better.

Any word on what headers fit the best without any or little modifications? I’ve been looking at long tube, hugger headers, but not really comfortable with what I am reading out there. I would like feed back on those that have installed a good set that fits great but yet, don’t breaks the bank. Thanks for the information on the K/H disc brakes. In the swap1 kit, is the master cylinder a 15/16” bore? I will be making an order soon. Thanks also on the x-brace. My Comet x-brace looks cheap and looks welded on. Aloha and mahalo from Hawaii, Ed
