flathead question

I have a few flatheads v8s, 48-53. One came with the crossover in the front and manifolds with provisions for the crossover and one output for a single exhaust. The other had manifolds that has only one output, so I put a dual exhaust on it. Which is the original set up, and how can I get another set of the manifolds with the one output?

Thanks in advance for your many, many responses,
Chris

The make of the vehicle that the manifolds came off of is needed to figure this out as a larger truck used the crossover in front or vice versa ( I could find out from a mechanic here in Canada and get back to you tomorrow )

flathead question

I have a '46 1/2 ton with a '49 engine. It has the single outlets on each manifold and uses a conventional crossover pipe. I have to earlier engines (early-mid forties and the manifolds are a different shape (bends). I have some excellent pictures of the installed if you want them. I will need some help from the "boss" to download them. Hope this helps...Joshua
