I did a search on the forum and found discussions on Headers and Y-Pipes for the 304 but did not find this specific info. I wanted to pass this on in case anyone was considering this type of exhaust. Thanks.
This Y-Pipe fits my 79 CJ7 304 and works fine with the Edelbrock Shorty Headers:
My 7 has the 3-speed. Not certain about a 7 with the T-176. I live about an hour from a 4WD Hardware brick and mortar store so I thought if the Y-Pipe did not work they said I could take it back to the store.
The unbelievable we can do immediately . . . the impossible just takes a little longer.
Hmm I wonder if that y would work with my 360 while still clearing the tf727.... probably not
Same problem here 360/727 I have the edelbrock shorty's tricoat (also discontinued) looks the same set up as the op with different pn #65913.
tried to find reducers for them but all are three hole so far, and the shorties were set up to mate with the 2 bolt stock flanges (rep said), which looks like they did well with the op's Y pipe.
Anyone with v8/727 have any luck with exhaust. My local shop did not like it and seemed not very interested in doing it ie $700-$750 for the job, 2x Flomaster mufflers/ pipe and labor. Thought it was too high and moved on for othe solutions.
