  • Manifold for my NAA
  • Looking for a good used intake/exhaust manifold for my Ford NAA tractor. Mines in pretty bad shape. I beleive its the same manifold that's used on the 600 series tractors.

  • I received several responses from folks with good used intake/exhaust manifolds for sale. Thank you for all the responses!

  • Yes, the manifold for the NAA model is the same used for the Hundred Series and Thousand Series, from 53-64, and is part number EAE-9425-C. Listed in the Dennis Carpenter catalog at $174.50. First, it's your tractor and you can do anything you darn well please with it, but, replacing the exhaust manifold isn't a difficult task, just time consuming. A few parts need to be removed first, carb for one, exhaust pipe for another, and possibly the coolant system drained as well. That being said, my advice is to invest in a new manifold and be done with it for another 7-10 years. Just some friendly advice.

  • Knew the manifold was leaking and was very noticeable a year ago at our local plow day. Just got the tractor out of winter storage a couple weeks ago and took the manifold off pretty easily last Sunday. I guess being in the heavy equipment repair business for 40 years made that a simple task. Knowing the manifold was leaking, I bought the new replacement manifold from Dennis Carpenter for the $174.50 so I could get it put back together quickly. Was very disappointed in the quality of the will-fit manifold from DC. If used, the carburetor would be positioned approximately 3/8" higher than the original manifold. I could also foresee the linkage from the governor and carburetor now misaligned, creating other problems. I have bought a lot of parts over the years from Carpenter and this is the first order I'll be returning back to them. As an old tractor lover of multiple makes, I am very discouraged with the quality of overseas replacement parts. I try very hard to buy the best original parts I can to keep each tractor as much American manufactured as possible!

  • Yep, I too have had issues in the past few years with DC parts. They are almost all now made in Cheena and there is no quality anymore. You won't find any manifolds, or any or very little cast parts 'Made In the USA' anymore. The EPA has seen to end that with all their restrictions on foundries and their waste disposal methods. Many foundries went of business because they couldn't afford to operate with the fees involved. My point was that replacing the manifold with a used one may not be a wise decision. A used manifold may have the same wear as your old one and thus the same leaks. I don't know if anyone sells anything new with better quality -they are all probably made by the same manufacturer in Cheena anyway. STEINERS list theirs at $119. Years ago STEINER used to make and sell USA cast manifolds and other parts right here in Michigan. They had to stop because of the costs involved -there was no return on their investments. I still have a 9N-9425 Manifold with "STEINER -MADE IN THE USA" in cast raised characters on the top. Be aware too that Carpenter has gone and changed the implement lamp bulb without warning. The bulb and socket has been changed to a new style that makes using the original lamp and/or socket useless. I've also had issues with their worklight wires as well. The bullet connectors pull off of the wires very easily. I could go on with other parts but I won't. They winder why they aren't selling parts much anymore. Maybe if people complained more they'd do something about it. The 'throwaway' American mentality nowadays makes it worse because people don't complain enough and return the crapola opting to just toss it and buy another new one. Wanting to keep things as original as possible is understandable, that's why rebuilding carbs, distributors, water pumps, governors, hydraulic pumps, et al is advisable. Wear parts like manifolds are not advised for reasons I stated.
