1954 Hudson Hornet Twin-H Intake Manifold with Exhaust Manifold

Looking for this item. If anyone has one, please contact me at bcbock@msn.com with pics. I bought an intake that I thought was a 54 - it's a 55-56 and the exhaust manifold bolt-pattern is different (the 54 has four bolts). I could probably get by with an exhaust manifold for the 55-56 (3 bolts).

    Usable 55- 56 Exh manifolds are hard to find. Better off buying a set of Clifford Headers then use your Intake.

    Just remember, when you install headers it makes the valve adjustment much harder.

    I have an exhaust manifold for the 51-54 in the garage. Would have to look at it. Think the heat riser needs freeing up, or the flap removed.

    Ken U-TX. I would need the twin H intake for the 54 - 4 bolt pattern -  or the exhaust manifold - 3 bolt pattern - for the 55 - 56 twin H that I have.

    These chambers under the carbs go to the exhaust manifold.  What was the purpose of this design?  To heat the fuel on the intake side?  I'm seeing three freeze plugs on each side.  I have a welder that says he can fix this, but it would be helpful to know the purpose of the design.

    Send it to Jeff Perkins at Perkins Repair Service, he welds cast iron with iron rods using a foundry furnace....He has repaired several of these Twin H intakes.
