    That is really cool! Can you get a flaring tool and flare the ends of the "header" a bit?

    A straight 6 or 8 might be more inline with the bike’s era.

    Flat head ford was a v8 but it only had 6 exhaust ports. I think that’s what Murray was going for on the Special Deluxe. B48B2906-25F1-4907-A806-677800FAD7C0.jpeg
