Any details on blower manifolds?

Post by limey57chevy » Mon Nov 18, 2013 9:10 pm

I can't find a newbie into section so;
Name is Adam & I'm putting together a late '50s style model A sedan with a fully rebuilt 291 Desoto engine bored to 306ci.

I was reading through his section & saw a couple if guys about 10 years ago offering blown manifolds. Is there there anyone currently offering these or is it a case of make my own?

Thank you

If we can't find one we've decided to make our own. Just done it for a 500 Caddy motor & it wasn't that hard at all. Won't be till after Christmas & yes we will be making very detailed patterns just in case others want one.

WEIAND made one back in the late 1950's-early 1960's.Good luck finding one.I've got a pic of one in an old catalog, but printer problems prevent posting a pic.

I was told tonight that a 4.6PI manifold from a ford modular engine may be a close match to the Desoto heads. Anyone able to confirm this?
