  • Carburetor manifold flange

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

    the engine tilts back at 3°, and the carb has to be level, if that is what you mean

      Mike V., You should be able to download an app on your smart phone. There are many to choose from. I think the one I have is Angle Pro.

        I guess I've never noticed an angle. I'll have to grab a manifold and check. A couple levels should show that.

          Be careful downloading some of those free apps such as the levels, angleometers, speedometers, etc. They often collect data from your smartphone, send it back to the developer who then sells it to others. Not only exposes you to privacy concerns, but are real drains on battery life.

            not sure you need an app.
            If the engine is tilted 3°, then the flange is also 3°, the other way

            the engine tilt is documented in the service bulletins

              That makes sense

            Well, because I am a doubter, or just inquisitive, I just went out with my angle meter app on my phone and my engine is still at 3º, in spite of the FaM, and the manifold is indeed at 0º!

            Be careful with some of the used manifolds as I have seen a couple of the Gleaner Combine intake manifolds that were at 0°. It is likely I have one or more of them in the pile. Going to sort through them next week and make sure before I offer any for sale. Rod

              Would 3 degrees REALLY make much of a difference in carb operation? That's ONLY about that l-l MUCH!
              If the carbs were THAT touchy, HOW could you even climb a HILL?

                  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?

                  by Brian in Wheeling
                  Anybody try one of the high-tech manifold coatings? If so, what has been your experience. Not talking here about fizz can paint jobs with barbecue paint, just the specialty shops, like Jet Coat, Cerama-Kote, etc.

                  Does anyone recognise this brand ?

                  Had RAR LA2519 on it.

                  Was at last weekend's swap.

                  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...

                  Replacement exhaust manifolds
                  by Tony Hillyard
                  Good afternoon everyone,

                  My early 1928 Model Tudor Sedan now requires a replacement exhaust manifold. Has anyone any experience of where to buy, any known problems, things to watch out for. Thanks in advance. Tony

                  Drive report
                  by 2manycars
                  It was a beautiful day in eastern CT today. (Mr Rogers would have been very happy). I drove all 8 cars, and 4 motorcycles and the tractor, for a spring excercize and gas up. But the part that may interest this crowd is how the tudor ran with the intake manifold bored out. I was very surprised at how much more power it has and how much better it runs with the intake bored to match the B carb that has...

                  Intake Questions
                  by Russ Cochiolo
                  I took the intake manifold off and found these inserts. 2 7/8" long, 1" i.d., 1 1/2" o.d. One is swaged in and the other is loose. The taper is on the carburetor side. What was the previous owner up to? He's passed on, so I can't ask him. He had a Stromberg 94 carb that I switched out for a Weber. Should I run it as found? It runs fine. Thoughts and/or suggestions will be ...

                  Porting and polishing,
                  by Terry, NJ
                  Because of the bad weather and Best's Gaskets haven't arrived yet, I needed something to do. I always have a project or two that I can switch to when needed. I had started P&P a couple of manifolds. They were bored out (The easy part). Now they needed polishing, this is the tedious part. Hours of going roundy, round, inside the runners till it's shiny and smoothe all around. Later on, I was going...
