Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Intake and exhaust manifolds color
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Tim Lloid on Saturday, March 19, 2016 - 06:22 pm:

I am taking the vaporizer off of my 27 roadster. It is hard to start and runs rich. I am putting a NH holley carb and a new intake and exhaust manifold on it. Getting the new carb and manifolds from langs. I don't have a book that tells the correct colors of the manifolds. I would like to have them powder coated,if the colors are available at my powder coating shop. Thanks in advance for the information and advise. Tim

The cast iron intake manifold would be black. As far as I know, Ford didn't paint the exhaust manifold. I do. I use a $20 half pint cast iron gray paint good to, I think, 1200 degrees.

I'm responding to this just so it gets bumped up, please do not consider me a reliable source for this. While painting my 26/27 engine, I was under the impression that the intake manifold was black and the exhaust manifold was a natural steel or iron finish.

I sprayed both mine with a heat resistant iron color and like the way they turned out. But I know not T correct.

I wouldn't try powder coating on an exhaust manifold - it'll melt off just like its melted on, I suppose :-)

I used heat resistant black spray paint from the local auto supply and it has turned greyish, but no rust in a couple of years, so it's OK with me.
