  • WTB original 1939 straight throat manifold
  • Looking for an original 1939 intake/exhaust manifold for my s/n 292 9N. The one with the longer appearing intake throat (no warming box).

  • Steve-
    I don't have one, but I have a source that will repop OEM cast iron parts if you can find an original unit in disrepair for use as a model.

  • Hi Tim,

    I have one, but the vacuum port was welded up and ground off and I need to repair that. I just thought I would advertise for a unit even though I figured the odds probably less than getting a set of loop rims which is about nil. I'm sure I'll get mine done sometime. I need to rig a setup to test that it will hold a vacuum in the intake portion and it is useable first. I did have a guy do some welding on the engine face flange and he said he fixed some inter chamber leak spots, but have not been able to confirm that. I just need to make up some blocking flanges to test it out.

    Casting a single part like a manifold would probably run a good $5K or so. Lyndon Moss was going to cast up about 10 sets of loop castings and it took 3 years just to get a couple of sets cast and then they still took a lot of work to make them fit the rims reasonably well.
