New exhaust manifolds

Unread post by luxagraf » Fri Aug 02, 2019 1:44 pm

Hello Travco friends-

I posted this over on Facebook, but I am getting ready to replace my exhaust manifolds (on a 1969 318LA), trying to figure out where I can get some new manifolds. Anyone done this already? If so did you get new manifolds or pick em from a yard?

I took them off today and the center is dual chambered dumping to a single giant manifold port, which just seems odd to me... is that mopar thing?

Dorman makes them brand new and doesn't look like too bad a price.

The center dump is more common than you think. Small block chevys use a similar set up.

I can't tell for sure, but I think that's the later style, which has extra ports below the main ports.

Mine look basically this the center dump model in there pictures: https://forabodiesonly.com/mopar/thread ... ds.438091/

Someone in the Travco facebook group says they have one they'll sell me, but I haven't seen pictures yet. None of the yards around where we are in Texas seem to have any.
