I need the intake and exhaust manifolds. Any info on where I might acquire them appreciated.
Thanks, Mike

Mike - I don't have a Truck parts book handy, are they different than the car manifolds? Are they the same as the K-10 manifold? I have a spare set from a 1950 "Commander" truck engine as we reused the set from my 38 Coupe when I installed the 245 truck engine in my car because they had been machined just prior to starting the restoration.

Intake part number 638044, used on all J and K-10 and 15, plus M-16/17 before engine number 3M15,547. Exhaust part number 191032, used on all J and K-10 and 15, plus M-16/17 before engine number 3M2546. Based on the part number, the exhaust manifold would also have been used on Commander cars.

Suggest post on Stude Truck Talk. Vern Ediger may be able to help.

I have a number of intake/exhaust manifolds both 6 and 8 cylinder.
The only way to identify these is by casting numbers.

Thanks to everyone for the information. I'll get with Vern and with Bob Kapteyn and see what I can come up with.
