 Nate, the fella that is doing the work on the '55 on CISO, is looking for a right side manifold for his 390. I know they are in the same section as hen's teeth, portable holes and unobtainium. But are there any out there? Can his cracked manifold be repaired?

The liar must have a good memory, and must also construct more lies to prop up the lies. It becomes a house of cards, and eventually the winds of truth will blow down that house of cards.

 The truth speaks for itself, and in turn justifies itself. Lies justify nothing.

 That is the case of the entire history of the 20th century. The lies cannot be sustained. Revisionism are those winds of truth, and soon that house of cards will come down and expose the liars.

That's the side with the generator bracket mount on the 365s.  Is it the same on 390?  I'll look and see if I have it.

Here's one on ebay for $150  http://www.ebay.com/itm/1959-1960-61-1962-CADILLAC-1475390-FINNED-RH-EXHAUST-MANIFOLD-USED-W-BOLTS-390-/361548612172?hash=item542dfa024c:g:Hx4AAOSw9uFW9Xs-&vxp=mtr

It seems I'm just now learning that there is/was a problem with them. I'd tell him to sit tight and watch the sellers, ie: ebay, Kiji, Craig's List, etc... I never heard of a shortage of these. It's not like they are 429 front covers. There are times when people are begging you to get the whole motors out of their garages for free, if you come pick it up.

We've got several 390 manifolds but none for sale.

Spares for our many 390 cars.

But isn't the guy putting a 62 engine in the car?  It's the transmission that's still a 55.

Or does it need to be earlier to avoid interference with the trans?

Then Russ's manifold will fit the engine. 

There's a lot of room in the 55 engine bay so I wouldn't expect clearance issues with the exhaust  but the original had a rear dump not a center dump.  Steering and suspension and starter clearance will need to be looked at if the 62 manifold is a center dump.

This whole car needs to be laid out here by the owner so we can work on what he's trying to do. Too many he said, she said's in the equation.
Steer him over here Mike and PM me or CF or ST if he's still haunting us here his login so we can get him opened up.

If he wants info, he needs to get us the info first hand, not as a third party message. If he's scared that easy, he may as well be on his own. Sam never scared him away yet.
