This one is original then, and made of aluminum. the passages along the neck where the exhaust traveles through were all broken through, I couldn't figure it out. Even the spacer on the top had a hole where it melted through...It appears the owner tried to fix it then with jbweld just to get it going again.
I have one on order, surprisingly from autozone and it's supposed to be here tomorrow. I'm worried though that it's going to be made of aluminum.
the spacer came in today from autozone...it's either an nos piece or cast off the original die, as it's got the ford logo on it, it's cast iron, and has a d7 part # on it. Good stuff. Thanks for all the offers guys.
