Wanted: exhaust manifold for a 262 in a 51 Super 6

SeniorSenior Posts: 4Member
Wanted: A good 262 exhaust manifold for 1951 Super 6. Also looking for a radiator for a 51 Hornet with the 308. Are the radiators the same for the inline 6 engine with or without the twin H set ups? Thank you in advance for the help.

    Unless I’m wrong, the radiators are the same and all the exhaust manifolds are the same as well on the big block 6s.

    Radiators are interchangeable except Hornet & Commodore 8 usually have a thicker 4 Core. The 3 Core works just fine ttough. Twin H has no bearing on Rad size.

    Twin H and single carb exhaust manifolds are not the same.

    You can interchange exhaust manifolds. The only difference is the extra heat riser tube on the Twin-H version. Unless you are driving in cold weather, probably not an issue.

    I have a radiator from a Commodor 8 which looks to be in very good condition, and a 49 Commodor 6 exhaust manifold.  $150 plus shipping  It is a single carb style manifold.  I am next door in MN.  I have a 49 commodore parts car, lots of parts.  buy it all.  763-458-1805 to text me.
