    My wife has a 1959 Galaxie with a stock 352/automatic transmission. Pretty much all stock with dual exhaust.

    I have noticed that the exhaust coming out of the drivers side is a lot hotter with more condensation than the passenger side.

    should they both be about the same temperature wise?

    Thank & any info (with or without sarcasm because I know how you guys roll:D) will be appreciated!!

    There is a good chance that car has a heat riser on the right side at the bottom of the manifold. It it is not free and easy to move the weight by hand, replace or remove it. They like to rust in the closed position, making all the exhaust from the right side have to pass through the intake manifold to exit the left. Living in a warm climate, you may never miss it if you decide to just remove it.
     
  3. Like Ole don says. Check the heat riser. You are correct in thinking both sides should be about the same temp. But only after a short warm up time to let the heat riser open.
    I like 59's. Here is a shot of mine.
