1949 Ford F1 Exhaust Manifold

Hi Everyone,

First thanks to all that helped me locate the correct shocks for my F1!

Now my new project.

My 1949 Ford F1 sports the 226 H series straight 6.

Well the exhaust manifold cracked last week.

Brought it home from the shop last Friday after having a new clutch put in. Drove it home and loved the new performance since the old one was worn down.

Truck ran great the 15 miles home, it even sounded better. Got home open the hood and found that the exhaust manifold had cracked at one of the ears.

SO no problems since I purchased on off a nice guy that took it off his 48 F1. My questions is that the one on my truck has the exhaust hook up located to the right of the carb. The one I bought has it located to the left of the carb.

Does anyone know if from 48 to 49 the exhaust hook up was changed from the left to the right. I guess it will not matter since I plan on running a new pipe and muffler.

Just wondering??????

Something to check out is the car & truck manifolds are different. Same engine but different exhaust manifolds. Not sure but I seem to have heard that somewhere...

As far as I know the exhaust manifold was the same for '48-51.

Hmmm

For the f1 truck then, should the muffler connection be to the right or left of the carb???

There must be a reason the car and truck manifold were different. I would guess it had to do with the frame and/or steering. It might not be an easy swap but I could be wrong, I know nothing about the car configuration. The truck with the 6 cylinder has a lot of room and a good exhaust guy should be able to come up with something.

Good luck.

Hey thanks for the info.

I have found pics with f1s that have both types of exhaust manifolds.

We shall see.

Thanks
