It looks paper thin. Rust & corrosion.
Get an Edelbrock. When I was going to do that, it seems they
made one with the oil fill tube provision.
Probl any early FE 4 Bbl Int/manif would work though

I have two early FE aluminum manifolds spotless clean I got at swap meets over the years. They have rear top mount for road draft tube. With five classic type cars am doing sorting down sizing of parts. Also have iron manifold off of 61 Mercury 390 that needs to be cleaned up. It has rear edge of manifold mount for draft tube. Anyone want all three for $400 plus UPS shipping ?

I picked up a used manifold off a 352 yesterday. Cleaned it up nicely with lots or wire wheeling and fresh coat of paint. Will install this weekend hopefully and cross my fingers that it nothing else going on.

Default Manifold Problem

Hi Wayne, I am glad to hear that you were able to get another 352 manifold. Before you put it on, I hope you were able to find the piece that was blasted out of the old one. As Dave said, it would be good to know where that went..... and find it.
