  • What year does this part fit?

    I have a V-8 4-bbl manifold, p/n 554641. I think it's from a late '50's Stude. Can anyone with a parts book for those years positively ID this for me?

    If that's the number embossed onto the manifold, I doubt it's gonna be a number you can look up in a parts book. That's cause it would be the part number for a raw casting, not a finished manifold.

        Easy enough to tell what you have though, if its got 4 holes in it,
        than its one of two manifolds - AFB (larger rear holes) or WCFB (all
        the same size holes). AFB is 63/64, WCFB is earlier than that. The
        same casting seems to have been used for both, whereas there was an
        only 2 barrel manifold casting, and then some later two barrels are
        made from the 4 barrel casting.
