AMC 360 headers

I bought an '84 Jeep from a guy last summer. He had installed a 360 in the Jeep and was running headers and glass packs that exited under the driver and passenger seats. I am wanting to run the exhaust out the rear of the jeep and maintain the dual exhaust. I am wanting to replace the headers on there already due to leaks but I can not seem to be able to find any headers that will fit. The headers on there now are hooker headers, but hooker is not listing any headers for the 360. Does anyone know where I can purchase headers for a 360 that will work in my '84?

4wheel drove hardware and quadratec sell hedman brand headers that fit real nice, I've got a set of the hedman HTC (high tec coating)headers. they come with gaskets and all the hardware you need but i recomend buying copper gaskets from mr gasket,( for any brand header) they will save you loads of trouble down the road!

They are expensive, around $300 or $360. or so.
Well worth it though if you are going to keep the jeep any length of time.

Just a thought, you could always replace the headers with stock manifolds and still maintain the dual exhaust.They aren't as cool as headers but they rarely leak, are quieter, and almost never crack.Headers have minimal gains below 3500RPM's so depending on the type of wheeling you do,may not even be neccessary.

Quick question:

I don't know what headers I have on my 360, I inherited the Jeep the way it is, LOL, but does the header have to come off to change the starter? Looks like it needs to, anyone have any trick? The header is so close, the starter looks trapped.

I have put the Edelbrock Ceramic shorty headers on my Grand Wagoneer. It is a direct bolt on and was clear of everything(plug wires, starter, ect). It comes with everything you need and a nice warranty as well.

the headers on the jeep do not go by engin size just amc -v8 ; all the AMc v-8 are the same size

your options are wheelwell or in frame headers or elderbrock makes shorty headers and last factory exhaust manafolds

to get the starter off on a J10 with headers...drop the bolts...and rotate the starter over the front shaft then give it about 1/4 to 1/2 turn and she will come right out between the frame and front shaft...or at least it does on mine...
