/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif Ah...you ARE a problem, Brian. That "heater thing' is a hot air loop which starts in the top of the carb where it can get filtered air....goes down into the intake manifold above the exhause crossover with quite a bit of tube folded back and forth, and then pops back out and hooks to the automatic choke housing. If the stuff inside the intake manifold is all rusted out or otherwise kaputzo, you are in a heap o' trouble. If it is the stuff on the outside it is just tube and can be replaced. About your only recourse is to get one from a discarded V8 manifold, or do some creative tube forming and make one. You could use copper if you need to, and......you can make one piece out of it....as in all one piece. Drill out the lottle holes in the two-bolt flange....form up the tube loop...slip the flange over the tube ends...fit it into the intake...mark for the carb connection...cut and install a fitting to hook to the carb....then form and fit the one to the carb air horn./wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif Easy?
