Default Sbc in 240. Anyone use Sanderson block huggers?

Picked these up yesterday cheap. Anyone use similar headers with this tube configuration? being ceramic-coated I can't really dent them for the steering shaft without ruining in a coding if they're not going to work I'll probably sell them and get stainless one. They are Sanderson cc158. I couldn't figure out how to load pictures

I put Kerker s/s block huggers on my V8 wagon back in '91. don't know if they are still made [325$ then]. The right side was tight to get the pipe around the starter, the left side cleared the early steering shaft OK, still on the car,drove it yesterday.

Up date. See post above,. the block huger headers that I used on my car... the outer pipes are inboard of the center pipes, they get closer to the block, no issues with the left side, but the right side was hard to clear the starter

You're going to have to cut and weld the headers you got to fit, why not make your own?

The collectors aren't the best, but at least you can make it fit the way you want. It's obviously more time consuming... something to think about.
