I picked up a model that today that had an Anco manifold. Are they any good? Was wondering if they made any difference in performance or if it is just a cool old accessory wallhanger.

Thanks, Neil

I like my Anco manifold. I've run two tours using it and my roadster runs real good with it and a Simmons carb. I was getting between 17 & 19 mpg. I don't have to run a stove pipe so I can use an air filter with no icing. PK

Hello Neil,

Here are some past threads on this manifold.

I have one but have never installed it to see for myself.

I have an ANCO on a 1915 T Runabout. It also has a Haibe High Power head, an improved cam, coils, original timer, and Holly NH carb. The car does not run right. It struggles at speed and lacks acceleration. Earlier this fall, our T club discussed the poor running and believe that it is starving for fuel due to the ANCO manifold. We thought it might be the carb so we swapped the one that was on it and put on a Potter rebuild NH. I can say it ran a LOT better with the Potter rebuilt carb. I have not taken the ANCO off yet to see if that helps. The car runs very well other than that.

The '14 has had an ANCO manifold for many years. It runs fine, no different than a stock Ford manifold except easier to install since it is one piece.

You forgot one feature that I consider a real "plus" that I'm sure you'll agree with Royce. Very slim chance of warpage with the Anco or Wilmo or probably any of the other less common one-piece manifolds,......harold

I have 3 of them on 3 cars and just got a 4th one for the last car. I really like them, both for the really nice castings and also the way they make the cars run. A real neat accessory!

What color were the Anco manifolds originally? PK
