  • Engine: Can anyone identify the manifold?

    I saw this on Ebay, the seller says it's for a Studebaker but he didn't know which one.

    You would have to have measurements of the intake port spacing. Many of these are for Commander six engines, which are larger than Champion six engines.

    Also, the throttle linkage should be at right angles to the length of the manifold. This may not be for a Studebaker at all.

      The Commander Six has Square Exhaust Ports, but the Intake Ports are round like the Champion. So as Roy said, I guess you would have to measure center to center on them.
      Edmunds did make them for Champions and Commanders even though Champions are more common.

      I've never seen one with a Heating or Cooling Water passage inside either, if that is what that is.

        I can't find the pictures of my Edmunds Champion manifold, but here are some poorer pictures of one just like it. Maybe you can compare the pictures. They do have a tube for manifold heat.

          That look very different imo. Here's a picture with a ruler in front of the ports

            I went out and took some pictures of mine with a ruler.

              The manifolds don't look at all a like, but it could have been updated? The measurement looks pretty close though

                Look at the orientation of the carburetor bases. The manifold in question has the carburetors rotated ninety degrees from the one in 52fan's pictures. I suggest again that the manifold Matt N is looking at is not for a Studebaker.
