you seem to be getting this gas leg issue all round your neck.
1) oil fired appliances do not need a drip leg as the inverted filter that should be between the oil tank and the appliance feed should trap any moisture in the oil as oil is lighter than water.
2) the "header" that you are talking about is called a manifold and is used in conjuntion with flexible or "gastite" gas lines where all of the feeds tend to come off one central manifold.
In the above instance the drip leg is normaly installed at the lowest point of the sytem on the supply side of manifold, which in my limited experience with these type of instalations is most often as the first element of the manifold.
