Hey Larry,
3/4" I.D. or O.D. 5/8" I.D. or O.D.?
I would get a galvanized reducing bell, with female threads in each end that will fit inside each pipe. Get two short nipples, one for each side. Put three pieces together with teflon tape. Slide hose clamp on each header hose and slide fitting into place. Tighten clamps, start car and check for leaks.
