Default exhaust manifold

I'm trying to determine the vintage of a badly corroded 352 passenger side exhaust manifold from my 58. I suspect the motor has been changed as exhaust alignment is way off. I would have expected a part number stamp somewhere, but I can't find one. It does have what I think is a casting number 5751204(I think) and a clock symbol with 8 86 cast in. But I can't find any part number like B9430A or B9EM-9430A, etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Default Exhaust manifolds

These screen shots are from the 1960 Ford master parts catalog but they all have the same part number for the exhaust manifold!Maybe not much help.

5751204 is the correct part number for a '58-59 352 right side exhaust manifold. Ford did not start using the part number prefix until 1960 on most of their engine components.

Thanks, guys. It solves the issue of no stamping. Based on that, I'll work on the exhaust pipe alignment problem. Thanks, again
