Any suggestions?
« on: December 18, 2017, 05:23:27 PM »
Folks,

Repair or replace?  I have new ends but can’t find a center.

Thanks,

I'm thinking i'll bring it to a welding shop downtown and see if the experts can patch it up. Really would like to put a new one on with my engine rebuild, but i've looked high and low and can't find one.

Thanks,

Manifolds have seemed to have dried up in the last 5 years. I'm afraid that we are all down to repairing what we have.

I have this if interested. It does have a few problems though but nothing serious I think. Here are some photos. It does come with the intake manifold.





For whatever reason the slot for the heat riser butterfly was sealed off. you will have to open it again.


The mounting flange on the exhaust to intake will need some work plus four new studs.




If interested I will take $200 for it. PM me if interested.
