Were the original (i have a repo) aluminum dogleg manifolds polished? Finished rough? Somewhere in the middle??

Don, every original I have seen has not been polished. The casting medium may have been finer than that used on the reproduction ones. This may give a smoother finish, but it is not a polished finish.

Hope this helps.
