Default What ta heck is it???

I have what I thought was some kind of manifold heater, but in 15 years, have not been able to find out what it fits on. My Dad had it in his junk... er... stuff, but he didn't know where he got it or what it was for. Any and all leads would be appreciated.

I wonder if that was for flathead v-8 the pipe flanges look kind of like they would connect up that way.

It doesn't look like it would fit a flathead V8. The Flatheads had three exhaust outlets in a row on the same plane.

(The center outlet was from the siamesed #2 & #3 cylinders on each bank).

It might have been designed to go inline with the exhaust pipe.

Take care - Elden
