    I’ll have to agree with Paul.  Really cool stuff.

    Hi bent medal, The photos of the 6cyl. With the Edmunds Dual carb setup look Great. Do you have any photos of the exhaust manifold on it? What did you do about the part of the manifold that 
    attaches to the intake manifold?

    The one I think you are referring to is an eight.  The exhaust is on the motor in the pictures.  However, if you put on an aftermarket intake manifold on a six or eight it won't have the heat riser and all of that connecting the intake and exhaust anymore.  The intake and exhaust will become separated.  ...at least on all of them I've ever seen.

    Sorry, I meant 8 cyl. Bent Metal, did you cut off the section of the exhaust manifold that would have been sticking out between the two carbs on the Edmunds intake?  I have an Edmunds for my 8cyl. And need to figure out the exhaust.

    Something is getting mixed up in our conversation.  I think you are referring to the 8 cylinder with Edmunds intake.  The exhaust on that motor is stock.  Because it's an 8 it doesn't connect to the intake and dumps at the front of the motor.  The 6's in stock configuration do connect the intake and exhaust and dump on the side of the motor right in the middle.  But the Edmunds intake won't have a connection to the exhaust, not in 6 or 8, at least none I've ever seen.  I think you are mixing up the 6 and 8.  Maybe take your Edmunds intake out and take a look?

    Ivan's car has an exhaust manifold that was cast in the UK, and doesn't have the heat transfer that connects to the intake.

    That’s what I’m looking for.  I know the Hudson 8 exhaust manifold attaches to the intake manifold.
    And does not attach to the Edmunds Aluminum dual carb manifold. My original question was, what can be done with the big hunk of cast iron that is no longer needed? Can the original manifold have this cut off and blocked?

    Thank you 54 coupe, I’ll check with Ivan about availability.

       Ok, I understand now.  I didn't have to deal with any of that.  Ivan should know about the exhaust which was through the Railton Owners Club, I think.  Thanks for clearing that up 54 coupe, and 29sptphaeton, please excuse my ignorance regarding the original exhaust configuration.  :)

    Now that I understand what you are talking about.  How about you make some headers for your motor?  With tubing coming up and then down the side of the motor.  Half in front, half behind the intake manifold?!?  Leave it a split, dual exhaust?  What do you think?

    I like the header idea. You could also divert the four rear cylinders to exit up out of the center of the manifold. I sent a message to Bent Metal with a photo of the one I have, done that way, as I can't post them here.

    I didn't get a photo.  How did you send it?  Why can't you get them to show up here?
