1970 XR7 w/ 351C. Is there a special tool to get to the hard to get to header bolts? Are some easyer to get to from under the car? it's tempting to just pull the engine.

header tools

A couple of tricks having done this innumerable times.

Pull the valve covers -- you'll be suprised as to how much easier it is to install headers with the VC's off.

Use a stubby wrench. I like the new Craftsman stubbies -- invest in a set.

Use 3/8" reduced head header bolts from ARP.

Enjoy.
