      I've often wondered about the manifold cooking plate....I'm sure the engine had to be totally null of any exhaust leaks........I cooked an egg on top of a tank in high summer at Ft Erwin, CA once, since we were getting nothing but powdered eggs, that fresh egg was damn good, sand and all!!!! :D

        its good to have an exhaust leak when cooking, it adds to the hickory smoked flavor

          On Old NASCAR cars, they screwed wood blocks inside the fenders for protection. When you slid along the CRASH wall, they got HOT & SMOKED!
          A FUNNY line was coined, "If you ain't smokin', you ain't RACIN"

            Gregg (RIP) & I cooked 3 eggs, after spraying PAM on my driveway, on a 113 Degree day! Marley, the next door WOOFER, ate them!

                    One of the best things you can see is artillery going over your head. Kinda looks like shooting stars. We need to quit.

                      Best things to have in your favor is artillery 'on target'.

                          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?

                          Water or excessive moisture in exhaust port
                          by EarlyBert
                          I have recently purchased my first Model A. I am replacing the manifold gaskets. I noticed excessive moisture in the 3rd exhaust port from the front. What could be the significance of this?...

                          by jordanka16
                          Well, went for a nice drive yesterday, but my passenger complained of the heat on her feet. I already have a thick mat and a reflective insulating pad, but she said it was warm still. I have read that a lot of people have good luck with the aries muffler, for many reasons, but they do reduce the heat on the floor. The existing muffler is just some glass pack thing he had lying around anyway. I've...

                          Broken exhaust manifold!
                          by DaWizard
                          Well, here is my sad story and I'm ashamed to admit it.

                          As most of you know, over the past few days I have been working on Wheezy to get him straightened out from the PO. Well, after reinstalling the intake/exhaust manifold I developed an exhaust leak. So, being the smart ass that I am, I remove the manifold and replace the gasket and gland rings to fix the problem.


                          Well,...

                          by Tom Wesenberg
                          I haven't bought or used any Rust 911 yet, but would like to try some to clean the inside and outside of an exhaust manifold.
                          I was wondering how well Rust 911 would work on the heavy rust, and inside carbon, that exhaust manifolds usually have?...

                          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?

                          Took the Chassis aka "Rusty" down the road for a spin. Getting some smoke where new exhaust clamps to manifold. Paint burn off? I'm just so paranoid about hurting a fresh engine.

                          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...
