Slip LT headers in before putting heads on?

  1. Hey guys, just had a genius idea... maybe

    I'm starting on my PI heads/LT headers/New Clutch/Prochamber project next week...

    I've heard horror stories about installing LT headers, and it hit me, what if I slip the headers down in there before I put the heads on the block, and let them sit down in there until I can bolt them up? I could save the headache of pulling the K-member, although I'm sure i'd still have to rock the engine in order to get the headers bolted to the heads. I've got a set of Ceramic coated MAC LT's (yes... they are ceramic coated, not HTS)

    Anyone done it, or think it can be done???

    Thanks a million!

  2. Yeah, that's how I did mine. It works well that way.
