Presently I'm gathering parts for my Speedster engine and thanks to my plastic fantastic there's quite a lot of engine parts crossing the Pacific to me right now.
I had intended to use one of those sexy dual exhaust manifolds, but with it exiting right where a lowered RHD steering column bolts to the firewall, I've had to scrap the idea. Since then I have worked out a plan with my local exhaust guy to fabricate a set of headers, and unless something else comes up, I'll go down this course.
To all you learned gentlemen, my question is.....Are there any other exhaust manifolds (other than stock) that I can use?
I am prepared to "adapt" something to fit. Bear in mind that it will have an aluminium High Volume intake manifold with a Stroberg OF attached.
I look forward to your answers.
Yes, there is a header made by Red's Headers in California that might fit if it clears your steering. Don't know if it will work with any configuration of stock intake, iron or aluminum/
The chap standing by to pour the babbit for my engine said something about using Model A manifolds. Whats the story there?
What about a Model A manifold?
I have this one modified to fit a T block.
That'd be perfect Peter.
Is it for sale? If so, please let me know.
My engine is close by to you presently.
If you can find one the model B manifold angles back more like a
T does. May be hard to find though. KGB
Rob, it's got your name on it,
better check it out first so you know it will work.
Might depend on what engine block and steering column you are using
When you get your engine back from Bob you can take it home too and set it up.
The block is numbered around January '25, and the column is no problem as I'm planning to have a foot throttle and an auto advance distributor, so the timing and throttle rods wont be necessary. (under the bonnet anyway)
I'll give you warning of my next trip to your part of paradise, when I deliver these new parts to Bob. I look forward to meeting you then.
Thank you Terry, Keith and Jerome.
