    I believe your best solution would be to contact whomever you were purchasing them from.

    Hey, for $125 they are OK. I don't know about using them in a stock application but they work for me on a 500 Cad in a '51 Olds Street Rod. By the way, I got them on eBay for the $125, I don't know what they get for them otherwise.

    Re: Headers

    Those are the block hugger headers, right? Check the clearance between the collecter flange and the front cross-member. I think you'll see that there isn't enough room to connect the exhaust.

    Those headers are designed for use in street rods that have no cross-member behind the motor mounts.

    Sandersen has a set of headers (CAD600) that are supposed to fit 68-76 RWD Caddys but they are kinda pricey.

    Thumbs up Re: Headers

    I have these headers.

    Good:
    Thick Flanges.
    Decent Welding.
    Reducers/hardware included.

    Bad:
    Poor chrome, don't look that great
    Holes did not line up. Took 1 hour to file them out.

    Summary: Well worth $125.

    Bingo. We have a winner. I rescued my 472 from a super ugly 1974 Deville. It's in a '78 Scout.
