    Update

    They have been left high and dry from the manufactuerer of their flanges so if you know some one looking to do small runs They are looking for a co to team up with. But they did make them for us.

    On this one they went to a lot of trouble to keep all the outlets connected. If you wanted to make one yourself, you could simply use bar stock and cut each flange piece separately. Then have it welded up to fit while bolted to the block. And it does not have to be as complicated as the one you see either. A much shorter 2 into 1 Y would be just as efficient. Remember that you’re not really gaining any horse power with these. Losing a bit of weight and gaining a terrific new sound is worth the effort. Good luck.

    Yes, the photos were taken with my phone, then downloaded to a laptop. I've both emailed and texted them to several friends but cannot seem to make the SDC system work for me. I'll keep trying and will welcome any tips and advice. Thanks.

    Are you loading the pictures to your computer first? I find that easier than loading from another host. Just click 'go advanced' and then scroll down to 'manage attachments' click, and then click 'choose file', go to your pictures and select the one you want. Down load one or several and exit when finished. Just read and follow the prompts.

    jpg, jpeg, and gif Picture Files are allowed, and there is a very reasonable Size limit.

    Thanks for the tips on uploading photos. Here are some pictures of the Morgan cylinder head and intake. The head is currently at the machine shop being surfaced. I don't know what compression ratio the head was designed to produce, so I hated to have to have it surfaced in case that might increase the chances of the valves hitting the head. But it definitely needed to be machined. I'll know soon if there is a clearance problem. If so, I'll need to find someone who makes solid copper head gaskets so I can get the clearance I'll need.

    Well, apparently no photos. I followed the very clear instructions and ended up with a message saying "invalid files," whatever that might mean, so I'll have to try to figure out what I'm doing wrong.

    The good news is that someone is now building a 4-into-2 header for me, and that is really the last important piece I needed for the engine project. Hopefully, by the time everything is installed on the engine I'll have figured out how to add photos to a forum post.

    You could make some short spacer blocks to push the Morgan out far enough to clear the curved tubes of a steel tube exhaust header.
    Hang in there... You'll get it done!
    Sounds like a neat project.
    I did up a Morgan dual ace and a Morgan head a while back. The Morgan intake is indeed short and close to the block.

    Click the icon that is a picture of a tree (3rd from right) and follow the prompts. "from computer", "choose file", then "upload file".

    Sure looks like a modified exhaust would fit since the stock exhaust fits fine.

    No, the Morgan intake does not leave room for a split intake. Not even close. It was obviously a racing part and its runners are very short, only 3/4" from the side of the block to the side of the intake's large plenum, meaning even a tubing header will have to turn downward immediately at the exhaust port in order to allow room for the intake manifold be bolted in place. On the other hand, Offenhauser makes a dual-carb intake that will work with a split exhaust manifold because the Offy intake has longer intake runners that position the plenum and carbs far enough away from the block to allow a rewelded, split exhaust casting to be bolted to the block along with the Offy intake. I know it's a little crazy, but since I have these nice Morgan parts I'd like to use them, and a header is the only way that can happen.
    I'm confused here. Can the Morgan intake manifold be not be used with in conjunction with an OEM exhaust manifold? Splitting the OEM exhaust manifold and adding a second outlet for the rear two exhaust ports has been done with the Champion for the past seventy-five years.

    Thanks for the update on the Morgan intake. That is one I have never seen, and somewhere I have a brochure from the Frank Morgan company, too. What about making a spacer (or set thereof) to space the intake further out from the block to allow for a regular split manifold? Real short intake passages usually perform well only at very high RPM, and aren't offer compatible with street use. Look at all the modern EFI engines with their very long, but equal-length, intake runners.
