Choke heat tube

I have a 1965 Mustang and will be replacing the exhaust manifolds with hedman headers. The choke heat tube is only sitting in the hole of the exhaust manifold with nothing attaching it to the manifold. Can I just drill a hole in the new header and put the tube in it?

No. Flatten the end and attach to outside of header. On stock manifold it fits in an isolated chamber. They even make a kit for attaching to headers.

Imagine a piece of exhaust pipe cut in half and placed around header with a tube to connect choke tube to. Held in place with hose clamps. For a neater look, the half with fitting could be welded to header tube. Of course I wouldn't do that with coated headers.
Edit: Of course you could convert to a manual or electric choke if you don't like the looks of this type.

They are basically the same, either one will work or as Explorer said you could convert to a electric choke.
