    Picked up an Edmunds intake. Guy thought it was for a Chevy 6 cyl but it's not. I need help identifying what engine it's for. I'm having a problem posting pic's so here's the specs: intake has 3 ports and is a 2 single barrel carb intake, 15 1/2" long by 6 3/8" wide from end of intake port to edge of intake, 3 intake ports are 1 1/4" on 7" centers, the 2 carb ports are also 1 1/4" on 7" centers, carb base is 3 3/8" x 2 1/8", carb studs are 2 5/8" apart, front stud is 3/4" tall and back stud is 1 1/8" tall. wish I could figure out how to post pics but still dumb founded. Any help identifying this intake will be greatly appreciated. Thx in advance, Gritz

    This should be on the main forum because many members don't visit this forum. There have been quite a few old catalog pics of Edmunds manifolds on hamb. It would take some searching to find all of them.

    It's a cool piece for history buffs for one reason: It is an early manifold made during the time when Eddie Edmunds wife was doing the names by free hand in the patterns. Look at the somewhat crooked "Custom" word. A nice blast from early hot-rodding past.

    Thanks for the info. Sort of new on here regarding posting stuff. Is there a way to move this to the main forum or will I have to retype it? I love all this old speed stuff. If I can figure out what it fits, it may help someone finish that "old skool" project. Thx

    I don't know what it is but it's really cool, almost handmade looking, that's gotta be really early. Are you sure it's not for the pre '37 era Chevy 6? The 1929-36 Chevy engines have different port spacing.

    Hard to say otherwise, Edmunds made so many different intakes. I have a 2x1 Edmunds hanging on my office wall that was made for 46-50 Nash Ambassador 6 engines, a real oddball.

    Not sure about the early Chevy 6's. I sold a restored 33 last year. Guess I should have paid a little more attention to it. SOLD pretty quick though. My '41 has a Jimmy 261 and it's a mile off. Would be nice to know what it is. Hoping someone has a clue.

    If your comparing to the GMC engine, that would explain why it doesn't match. The Jimmy is not the 261 Chevy engine. Or maybe you do have a Chevy 261 and just mistakenly call it a Jimmy engine?

    My goof up. It is a 1962 Chevy truck motor. I'll blame it on old age.

    I know what you mean! You have me wondering on that intake. I'm guessing the intake ports are closer together that the Chevy intake?

    None of the post-war Edmunds info shows a pre-216 Chev manifold. It isn't Chevrolet or GMC - that's for sure.

    Thx for the tip. Got out the 'ol magnifying glass but no luck. Had a youngin look for something but he came up empty also. Tried the "pencil rub" technique but the bottom is pretty rough so nothing legible showed up. But it was a good tip and got me in the garage for a little while.

    There are enough similarities to this one offered up on Ebay that one would think it might be for a 216.
    eBay item number:
    371952416396
    This one looks a bit closer as far as how the manifold to head flanges were it also shows different script on top (probably meaning a later edition ) and it shows the previously mentioned stamped application on the bottom.

    Not sure, but it could be for a Studebaker Champion 170cu flathead 6. I can check measurements later.

    I checked the measurements on my 170cu Champion engine - the three ports have 7" centers. Also, the taller carb mount would be at the rear, making this manifold a passenger side engine mount. Stude intake (and exhaust) manifolds are on the passenger side of the engine, so I say this intake is for a Stude 6.

    Would that have had to been written backwards?
