Re: In need of exhaust manifold for M38

On the F-head, aren't the intake and exhaust on opposite sides of the head?? The L-head exhaust and intake bolt together on the driver side... Im not sure on what the difference is from the L to the F so that might work. Is the F-head a flat head or is that when they went to the over head style??? Im getting ready to call Clements out of Springfield MO. Don't realy like to deal with him or even drive over an hour to get there but I will if I have to.

WILL if you can find one down your way that would be great!! Im heading down there next weekend for my bro-inlaws wedding!!
Rio_Grande if the F will work, Im interested!!!! Thnx for the help guys!!!

Yeah, the F-Head has the intake valves in the head and the exhaust valves in the block. Then intake is on top of the head on the opposite side as the exhaust. They use the same exhaust valves and guides, I just didn't know if there was a chance of the exhaust being the same.

You might be better off buying a new one. They seem to get old and brittle and you may need to have it surfaced anyways.

lindy80cj7:
Do you know where I might get a new one?? Is there someone still making them or stocking them?? As of today the only thing I have come up with is a phone# for a place out of Oklahoma City! Don't even know what this place is yet, have to call tomorrow. I know there is a huge milatary surplus salvage or something in OK City. Not sure if this is the number for that or not, got it from Clements Jeep Salvage!

Krage should have them. Also try Kaiser-Willys Auto Supply. I've dealt with both of them with good results.

Re: In need of exhaust manifold for M38

I will have to keep those places in mind!!! My brother inlaw located one for me for $20. The guy is real big into the milatary vehicles.
WILL have you ever been to car show for milatary vehicles at Petit Jean Mountain?? I don't know if I would call it a car show but its pretty cool, I went last year. They have a car swap meet there and you can get some good deals!
