SB Ford Flanges
Sanderson offers some of their small block Ford headers in two flange styles—the standard rectangular flange, and the square port flange. A third flange style is available on some header sets for the Roush-style SB 427 cylinder heads. This is not a common flange design. Many aftermarket cylinder head manufacturers now use the square port shape on their products. However, that does not mean the square flange is required. The importance here is to ensure the header flange properly seals to the cylinder head. In most cases, the standard rectangular shape works perfectly, but on other heads, the square port flange is necessary. It is the customer’s responsibility to decide the correct flange for their application. Typically, the ONLY cylinder heads that accept a square port flange are those with either four mounting bolts per port (two are spaced wider apart to accommodate the wider port opening) or very specific cylinder heads that only offer the wider bolt spacing.
NOTE: Sanderson charges extra for headers built with the square port flange due to the additional manufacturing time required.
