1951 intake/exhaust manifold

I have a 1951 Ford 8n tractor with a funk conversion, which means it has a flathead 6 industrial truck engine. I'm rebuilding it since it doesnt work... but I cant seem to find some parts. I need an intake/exhaust manifold, but cant find one. the rest of the parts (i believe) are readily available. Does anyone knwo where i can get one? What about other engine parts? Is one place better or cheaper than another?

thanks,
Brian

Does that have an "Updraft" carb? Saw somewhere that some of the COE's used an updraft.
