When I was looking for tubes for a Baby Hemi [270] a few years ago, Hot Heads said they had no more and the company that made them had shut down. I ended up robbing my 354 Hemi and they were the same length, although there are different lengths, I guess.
Thank you, Snopro for finding an alternate source. I've written that down for the future.

Early slant 6's had them. It would be nice if they were the correct size.

Now that the coupe is gone I've been working on getting the Baby Hemi started. Drained the old oil & filled it back up, new rebuilt carb, new rebuilt fuel pump & took the 6V battery outta my 8N tractor. Pulled the spark plugs & valve covers off & turned the motor over enough to get the rockers to finally start oiling. I've always been lucky enough to get that done just turning the motor over with the starter instead of yanking the dizzy & using a oil pump priming rod. Got a gas line run but still have to hook up a solenoid. It has spark so I plan on getting it running in the next couple of days as soon as I can get an oil pressure gauge hooked up! Probably paint it up a lil & sell it to get the $$$ for the MII front clip for the Ranchero! I will be video taping the resurrection!
