Continental Engine: Exhaust Manifold Help needed

Postby Brockway Express » Tue Jun 19, 2007 1:54 pm

Hey Guys!

My 53 152W has a Gas Continental 6...and the exhaust
manifolds are rotted/cracked beyond salvation.

I had a set donated to the cause but the dog ears were
all gone and they had two cracks....when the welder tried
to make them work...well they warped and new cracks developed.

So... I found a guy that has the proper rear half, but a goofy front
half. On my engine the front manifold goes down to the exhaust
pipe. The part he has goes up! He says mine is wrong and I need
his part.

My thought is his application is for a farm tractor! So...I need some parts!

The intake/carb set up is excellent...the exhaust 2 piece is shot....any thoughts??

Thanks...

Hi...

Can you post a picture of the manifold? I believe it's an updraft setup, right?

YES! Same set up, the front half does not have the "holes" on the
top...but YES!

Now what?

I'll be away from the computer for a few days so I'll have to catch up with you over the weekend. I don't know if any off hand but I'll ask around.
