  • Alloy twin carb sidevalve manifold.

    Does anyone recognise this brand ?

    Had RAR LA2519 on it.

    Was at last weekend's swap.

    Keith, I have seen that manifold before, but I don't remember what the RAR stood for, nor when I remember seeing it.
    You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

      that's a v8 manifold

        Maybe "rar" stands for "Rots A Ruck"... Seriously, I wonder if the "1" could be a bar, making it "LA 25 bar 9"?

          Wow Corley, I would never have noticed that if you had not mentioned it.
          What does the LA25 I 9 then mean?

            HA! Who knows what it means, but it is something else to consider when researching. Got to keep an open mind you know...

              A Friend owns a "MUSEUM-LIKE" auto upholstery shop, on the wall are DOZENS of Flathead V-8 manifolds. MANY that I've NEVER seen before! "Wonder" how many MORE are in his HUGE BASEMENT???

                Should I match my Model B carb to my Model A intake manifold?
                by Ayyy
                When I bought my 1930 CCPU, it came with the 'A Manifold' / 'B Zenith' combo, and the manifold is not modified in any way. I've been thinking about porting/honing (what ever the right process is here?) the manifold. My truck never goes faster than 45, and almost always cruises at about 40.

                So is it worth the effort to modify the manifold?

                Normally I don't make any significant...

                Carburetor manifold flange
                by Mike V. Florida
                By design that is the angle of the carburetor manifold flange to level ground. In other words, what is the tilt of the flanges?

                surfacing manifolds
                by Great Lakes Greg
                I have a new exhaust manifold from Snyder's and I am getting it surface matched to the intake. When they are bolted together, the intake manifold is 1/8 inch below the exhaust manifold surface. This seems like a lot to me, only because I have never noticed it on other examples in the past, presumably because they were closer matching. Is 1/8 inch too much to take off the exhaust manifold?...

                How spot a warped exhaust manifold
                by JDupuis
                When explaining about a warped exhaust manifold, most think of a twisted face on the manifold.
                I quickly put this together to help visualize, that a warped manifold can be hard to spot.

                I marked the cylinder ports to help with my explanation.
                Study each picture.
                one shows the yard/metre stick covering part of cylinder #4 when I have the straight edge touching the bottom...

                Manifold Question
                by WayneT
                When installing the manifold using copper gaskets, does it make any difference where you put the smoothest side of the gasket? Example: Smooth side toward Block and seam side toward Manifold OR vice versa?

                Cracked Manifold
                by WTSHNN
                I took my manifold off a few months back to put on a cleaner looking one. I pulled the old one off the shelf over the weekend and found the problems in the attached pics.

                The cracks do not go all the way through the metal. The one port is egg shaped. There is also a crack on the outside of the manifold but again it doesn't go all the way through.

                It wasn't leaking exhaust...

                Exhaust manifold question?
                by Mickey
                Does this gasket fit up into the manifold?

                Exhaust Manifold Anomaly
                by BudP
                I have been working on a May 1931 Roadster for 7-8 months now putting it in running and stopping condition. Many of it's parts are original. I had an exhaust leak. The exhaust manifold is the manifold introduced in March 1931 and found on page 5-1 of the RG & JS, 2016 revision (copy attached). I removed the exhaust manifold, put a machinist's straight edge (good to four places beyond the decimal...
